ahmadbeqai is on a distinguished road

I have been trying to simulation a wind turbine using the Actuator Disc Method. In a nutshell, I made use of the porous domain formulation in Fluent, and I did some tweaks here and there, and I got some good data.

For now, I want to expand this method.

For the wind turbine, I have the aerodynamic forces and I am planning to impose them into points that imitate the shape of the blades. I was wondering if there is a way to add external forces onto specific rotating grid points.

Thank you,

Ahmad Beqai
