Hi, Im hoping someone of you could please help me with a UDF that has been wrecking my head for a while now, I want to model a 3 bladed vertical axis turbine in 2D, I was hoping the UDF would do that. I have come up with a functions that relates the pitching angle to the azimuth position, implemented using an If and else statement and set the azimuth to the initial position(theta0) + the time step(thetap1)

however after the 1st rotation I run into trouble here as I dont have a reset condition, could anyone help out here?

Im also having problems with getting it to work successfully, I thought having a pointer for *Angle would set my angle similar to others like omega, however it does not, Can anyone help? I'd be eternally grateful

any help or advice would be greatly appreciated,
Thanks
