Vertical Axial Wind Turbine (VAWT)
Combining AMI and 6DoF for a flow induced rotation
Flow-induced rotations are state of the art problematics in computational fluid dynamics analysis such as wind turbines or Kaplan turbines. OpenFOAM® offers the possibility to use an existing library namely the Six Degree of Freedom (6DoF) library to model such a phenomenon. This training case will guide you through the necessary steps to simulate flow-induced rotations. The well known and structured Holzmann CFD's run script is generating the whole case automatically and therefore, you can understand and follow each step. Discount of 25 % possible.
Holzmann CFD does not give any warranty to the numerical results that are obtained within this training case based on the fact that there is no verification or validation.
