Hi all,

Does somebody can tell me how to define the rotational direction of a wind turbine. I use sliding mesh to simulation the rotation, the axis of wind turbine is defined as (1,0,0). My question is that how to define rotational-axis direction of rotational volume wihch contains the wind turbine, is (1,0,0) or (-1,0,0). because when I set wind turbine and rotational volume with the same direction, I can't see the helical wake.

-mAx- will become famous soon enough
I would say you should set the rotationnal speed with respect of rotation axis

Hi everybody
I am doing a CFD simulation of a wind turbine (Rutland GW530) and I'm struggling because i can't draw it until now on gambit
so please ,
there's anyone can help me ??
I have juste one more month to finish my projet
so pleaaaaase

Do you have the turbine blade modeled in 3D already? Something like SolidWorks/Catia/Pro-Engineer?

Hello All,

I want to do analysis of heat transfer from water flowing through pipes submerged inside concrete. I am modelling in GAMBIT and wish to analyse it on Ansys FLUENT.

Can anybody help me out, how to model and simulate?

Does any tutorials exist?
