Default Wind Turbine
Posts: n/a
Hi there,

I am working on different Wind Turbine designs at the moment. Unfortunately I don't know much about CFD so far.

I am looking for a software package that integrates fine with AutoCAD.

What I have in mind is some sort of virtual Wind Tunnel.

What I would like to do in the future is to optimize / fine tune some of the parameters (e.g. blade angle, ...) automatically with a genetic algorithm.

But for the moment I would be very grateful if someone could tell me which software works best with AutoCAD.

Cheers, Frizz

Do you want to generate meshes for different configurations with the inputs from AutoCAD?
