I want to do hydrodyanmic design of horizontal axis tidal current turbine as my final year project for bs mechanical engineering degree. My turbine would be 20m or 1m in diameter and will be installed in ocean bed. I want to know how many cores and ram etc will be required for 3D simulation of this turbine using k-epsilon model for turbulence. The ultimate goal is to find torque and power produced by turbine and axial loads on it.
I am a newbie to FEA so i don't know much about meshing till now.
