 March 14, 2007, 14:00 Re: How to calculate Torque for francis turbine #3 manish Guest   Posts: n/a hey i got it but i have now another problem i cut the passage between two blades like that i have one side suction surface of the blade and another side pressure (i can say one side half blade and another side half blade) and i don't have one single blade so it is possible for to calculate the torque with my case or i have to modify my geometry in cad software and do meshing and simulation again.
