please help in simulating a wind turbine blade in 6 DOF ????....
 
Hi,
I have a problem about the rotating simulation of wind turbine.

I usually use 6 DOF UDF to calculate forces on a free falling body and its trajectory is found.But here the problem is wind turbine blade has to move about a fix point,not freely and wind flow work is done on the blades to make the blades rotating.
In the wind turbine case, I only have the data of wind flow at 6 m/s.

How do I simulate the wind flow work is done on the blades and then blades rotating?

Regards....
I will wait for the kind reply from any1...
