Me_CFD_Not_So_Good is on a distinguished road
Hello CFD experts,

I hope you could please give a CFD novice such as myself some expert advice.

I am modelling a variable pitched turbine within a duct and I want to determine the Lift and Drag forces at the end of each time-step as the turbine and blades rotate.

As the duct is accelerating the flow and changing the angle of the flow I cannot use a monitor.

I am using mesh motion within fluent to model the movement of the turbine.

can anyone provide me with some assistance?
