Flow around a fixed wind turbine

Flow around a fixed wind turbine

Flow around a fixed wind turbine

This example illustrates a thermodynamic flow deforming the blades of a wind turbine. The blades are here supposed fixed and are oriented perpendicular to the inlet flow (the worst configuration). The figures represent the deformation of the blades, the temperature and the velocity of the fluid, as well as the streamlines behind a blade. It can then be seen that two vortices are created behind the blade, and that the fluid goes down.
This application has been solved with OOFELIE coupled with FINE™/Hexa.
