Wind turbine model
 
Hi everyone

Can anyone point me where to get a wind turbine model or geometry info to create a CAD model; does anyone knows/has any results that are typical used in CFD as validation test cases?

Many thanks

wht exactly u want, get the geometry from BEM theory n create it in any cad s/w, choose ur airfoil section n get the data from uiuc,

I would like to run my own simulations and then validate them, against established CFD or experimental results.
