Hello everyone,
I am a third year mechanical engineering student. I am working on a 3 blade horizontal axis water turbine. I choose fluent for the fluent cfd for my analys.

Turbine specs

profile: NACA 0015
Length : 1.5m
dia : 1.25m
chord length: 160mm

I have regenerated a sliding mesh analysis for the rotor.

I would like to know the procedure for the calculation for torque.

Should i take the moments result from the rotor analysis?
What is the ideal value of Cl?

Else should i stimulate only a single profile and calculate the Cl value at each angle to obtain the force and torque from it?

I am confused and have no references left.

Kindly guide me.

Sir, thank u for the feedback. But is it right to relate between a wind mill and a helical water turbine?
