Multi-Stage turbine analysis
I want to simulate a 5-stage gas turbine. The geomerty details are a follows,
- Stage-1 -> Stator - 4 blades, Rotor - 9 blades
- Stage-2to5 -> Stator -7 blades, Rotor - 9 blades
To start with i am planning to use "Mixing Plane Model". I need some help in how to mesh the geometry (particulary defining the interfaces) and is it possible to use periodicity?
