Hi friends
I am new to fluent. I struggling to rotate the wind turbine in fluent, I'm getting maximum velocity at the tip. I thing the procedure that i was following is wrong. ll'u please send the procedure for rotating the wind turbine. My project is to find out the turbulence effect on Back n front side of wind turbine. please help me to do that. Here i attached the results that i got frm fluent.

Boundary condition:
inlet velocity 2 m/s
bc for blade i mention in figures.

please check it whether it's correct or not.

If it's possible please send the step by step procedure to my mail id:

Thank u
