 February 19, 2006, 21:39 How to set moving mesh in this case? #1 Tipakorn Guest   Posts: n/a My case study like is water turbine. We input water's velocity and impact blade that we want to know rpm of blade. But I don't know how to set moving mesh. Please help me. It's important. I want to know quickly Thank you

For extra informations You can read: http://www.adapco-online.com/adapco_.../rotflow1.html http://www.adapco-online.com/adapco_.../rotflow2.html

The first one doesn't need moving mesh at all - you can just run you case with implicit rotating reference frame with different RPMs, then look at the torque vs RPM curve and choose the point which corresponds to your value of torque, produced by generator or what else is coupled with your turbine (you'll need also torque vs RPM curve for this device, so the intersection of these two curves will give you the point). The secong way is much more complicated, because you'll have not only to set moving mesh itself (see tutorial 7), but to write a user subrouting for integration of a simple ODE for rotation. So you better think twice, which way to choose!

 February 21, 2006, 02:27 Re: How to set moving mesh in this case? #5 Kevin Guest   Posts: n/a It sounds like you need to perform an indeterminate mesh motion analysis, where the position/rpm of the turbine is not known beforehand. There are no default tutorials provided with STAR-CD showing how to do this but I did write a simple example a long time ago for linear motion showing how a static valve could be moved based on the force of the fluid acting on it. Please work through your local STAR-CD agent and have them contact Kevin Jones in the CD-adapco Seattle office in order for you to receive a copy of this example. Note it will be provided as is with no support included. You will also need to be very familiar with EVENTS in pro-STAR and comfortable with programming user subroutines in FORTRAN in order to be successful at what you want to do.
