wind turbine modeling
 
Hi,

I am new to wind turbine modeling. I appreciate if someone can give me an idea if the CFD tools such as star-CD, CFX or openFOAM are practical for the design and optimization of the wind turbine (especially the blades) or people usually use other practical packages commercial packages where you put your inputs and you receive the details about the wind turbine parameters needed for these specification?
I also appreciate if you can advice me about which package is more capable in the design CFX or star-CD or openFOAM that account for FSI with less memorey requirements.
Thank you,

John
