Hello everyone

As a part of my project, I am required to calculate the drag forces on a propeller (thruster) under motion. I have been able to estimate the drag forces on the thruster using Ansys fluent under stationary conditions.

However, once the propeller is in action, it will experience thrust and rotation of blades. Under these conditions, I am required to recalculate the drag forces. Since I am running out of time, I have been told by my guide to use dynamic meshing on the lines of "an already available model of a propeller" to simulate the thrust and rotation of the thruster. Also, it has to be done without using UDF.

Please guide me about how to for the same. Any research papers describing the methodology, video links or suggestions would be extremely helpful. My confusion is precisely about how to describe the rotation of blades and the thruster force using Dynamic meshing. So any already available analysis would be helpful. So, the mathematical procedure to calculate the forces and rpm of blades is not that relevant and it can be different also.

I need help with understanding the procedure.

Thank You
