Moment Coefficient Monitor
Hi,
I was hoping somebody could help me with this question... I'm modelling the performance of a horizontalaxis wind turbine as part of my thesis and need to obtain values of torque. I'm running the inlet at 4.5m/s and then using a moving reference frame at differing speeds to simulate fluid flow. I've put a Moment monitor about the Zaxis from the turbine centre and have got values of between 8.2 (750rpm) and 15.6 (1000rpm). The turbine is 0.344m in radius giving a swept area of 0.372m2. I've run the solution on a ke segregated solver with convergence of 0.0001. Any help would be much appreciated, thanks Tom 
Hi, I'm sorry this is when using FLUENT 6.2
