Which OpenFoam-2.1.0 solver of wind turbine
Dear all,

I want to utilize OpenFOAM-2.1.0 to simulate a wind turbine.
As of now in the learning phase as a newbie.

I could read somewhere that turbDyMFoam can be used for simulating wind turbine.
However I could not find it in the current version of OpenFOAM (i.e., 2.1.0)
Could someone help me locate it or indicate to me an existing solver that can do what I want.
Also, if one could help with implementing the fact that rpm is not constant, it would be great.

Thanks all for your time.

By regards.

Hello again (it is Robert)! I believe that is an older version of the turbulent dynamic mesh solver. It seems to have been replaced by pimpleDyMFoam.

Thanks Robert.
I have been using that one without being sure.
