Hi Guys,

My Problem:

I have been studied an isolated aerofoil in 2D and generated results that are accurate enough when compared to those recorded by Abbot & Von Doenhoff.

I am now required to study the cascade effect of the aerofoil acting within a turbine.

I am wondering where is best to start on such a problem, I have heard "disk actuator theory" and using "periodicity" in simulations to gather results, I have no experience in either.

Ideally i would prefer to just modify my current domain what uses a C-Mesh.

I am a CFD novice just so you are aware and any help or pointers would be greatly appreciated.
