Hello forum

I have a question regarding the Actuator Line Turbine Model in SOWFA code.

I was wondering that is it possible to scale down the size of blades and its domain in this model ? eg. 100 times smaller than the real scale [(30 30 10) blockMesh size]. From my understanding, it is required 21 hours running time in 64 processors machine.

I also tried to modified the boundary condition, meshing, and NREL 5 MW turbine data to satisfy the scale down requirement. Unfortunately, it does not work and the forces does not appear in the final output.

Thank you very much in advance.

Kind Regards,
