In the computational fluid dynamic analysis, engineers are using a fixed rotation set-up for the moving mesh that includes the design of the turbine. However, if one is interested in a flow-induced rotation, the six degrees of freedom library in OpenFOAM can be used to handle such analysis. Discount of 25% possible.
Vertical Axial Wind Turbine (VAWT)
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.
