Hello everyone,

I am looking to work on a project using Ansys Fluent that incorporates moving wind turbine blades and the effect on airflow and power generation. I was wondering if anyone has had any experience and could point me in the right path and what strategies I should be using.

Regards.

Use CFX for rotating equipment.

Probably, but I don't know. You should ask the Fluent forum

I always use CFX for rotating equipment. Moreover I try to avoid Fluent as much as possible. I only use it if people ask me to.
