mspranavmn is on a distinguished road

I am a newbie and am trying to learn the Actuator disk model (ADM) and Actuator line model (ALM) for the wind turbine.

I started learning about actuator line modes and wanted to know how to design an actuator line. No one discusses about it.

If someone can suggest papers or a tutorial of some kind it would be really helpful. I designed an actuator disk based on the thrust criteria and the porosity and momentum deficit.

Basically, my questions are as follows,

1. What are the criteria/conditions to design actuator lines?
2. Are the cross-section of blades in ALM, circular or are they the same cross-section as the blades being tested?
3. Is there a tutorial or a paper on designing and meshing of the domain for ALM?
4. How to implement them in ANSYS CFX or Fluent?

Thank you.
