Design & analyses of wind turbines final year project, please help!!!
I am a Mechanical Engineering student from UK.
I am doing my final year project on Analysis and Design Wind Turbines. I need to analyse the blade design by using CFD.
I am told to use Fluent, but I found out that XFOIL or XFLR5 is also a very good program for that.
Could you please tell me which one would you go for (or both), and what is the best way to analyse a wind turbine blade on CFD. In Fluent I know that if you are setting up a 3D wind turbine problem you need to use the MRF (moving reference frame) right? Can you use the MRF for 2D analyses as well?
I am going to analyse firstly 2D and then if possible I would like to build a 3D model of the wind turbine.
I thought of modelling it on Pro Engineer and then importing onto Gambit by saving it as a IGS file.
Do you know anything about 3D meshing and how is the easiest way to do it?
Any help is greatly appreciated
