Default Define a surfacesection on a rotorblade in Post
Posts: n/a
Hi everyone,

I am a student working on my diploma thesis. I have done a 3D-Simulation (120 section, periodic BC, 3 M Hexas) of a wind turbine rotorblade. Now i want to create small surfacesections at different radial positions to identify the forces acting there. I could not figure out by now, how to do that in CFX-Post. I have created Polylines but its naturally that forces can not be evaluated on these. Is there a way in CFX-Post to define sections of Surfaces, for example cutting out a small piece of the rotorblade surface going from radius 12 m to 12.01 m. Then it would be easy to calculate forces.

Thanks in advance. Kraemer
