CThib is on a distinguished road
I'm wondering if anybody here has any experience using OpenFOAM for tidal turbines (low steady uniform current, rotating frame of reference). Someone suggested 'libTurboMachinery' but it appears that is for turbo chargers. While that may work, is there a library specifically made for tidal turbines, which rotate considerably slower?

It appears a solver called interDyFoam may also work, but I'm not yet familiar with it.

Thank you!
