How to model blades that intersect each other?
I am trying to model fluid flow in a radial turbine that has the shroud side of the blade rounding forward and permanently connecting to the blade in front of it. I am using Solidworks for the design then importing into Ansys 11. I Have modeled the fluid domain and got good results from advanced CFD(ansys workbench), but I need to get rotational data. I have a few questions.

1. Is it possible to do this with Turbo grid? If so how do I define the shroud curves and what settings do I need?

2. If I can't use Turbo grid what can I use (ICEM CFD or advanced CFD)?

Any help would be greatly appriciated.
