Default Affordable software to evaluate wind propeller?

Hello folks,

I'm tinkering with some design ideas for a wind turbine propeller but am not currently a CFD software user (or an engineer for that matter). What software out there would most affordably allow me to test the rotational efficiency and aerodynamics of my prop design at various simulated wind speeds?

Thanks for any suggestions or advice,

Thinkos

If by affordable you mean tight budget, then go for either Flow Vision ( a Russian product ) or CFD++ ( a South African product) You can download their Evaluation (Limited Cell Number) then decide by yourself which one you like most, both have the same capabilities as the big names. Cheers and Good Luck.
