Hi,

I am trying to set up a wells turbine simulation so that i can analyse different shaped nose cones and see what effect they may have upon the efficiency of the turbine.

I am attempting to use ANSYS, more specifically using Bladegen, Turbogrid and CFX. However I am struggling on even getting the basics done.

Can anyone point me in the right direction and maybe suggest some tutorials etc. ?

Kind Regards
John

hey john,

I found this dissertation on design optimization of Savonius and Wells Turbines using ANSYS Fluent. http://d-nb.info/1011710889/34

I hope this might help you get started.
