CFX-meshing step
1 Attachment(s)
hey Guys

I'm a new user of ANSYS. I have project to simulate vertical axis wind turbine.I have draw it in ansys workbench but I have problems in meshing,
if you have literature tell me please:o
could you help me?:confused:

Thank you
afif by I send you my drawing.

Looks like a straightforward rotating frames of reference model. Have a look at the rotating machinery tutorials.

thank you for your answer, in this project I look for CL, CD and main shaft torque. do you have reference step to CFX-mesh?

Zero thickness?
Are the vanes zero thickness within the surrounding volume (AKA zero thickness baffles)? That is currently a problem for Workbench meshing (since the concept never existed for FEA). It has been fixed for 12.1, but in the mean time, you will need ICEM CFD or TGrid to model zero thickness Baffles, or you could give them some thickness so ANSYS Meshing (workbench) can handle them...
