Turbine Modelling

Model Scale Turbine Testing for Numerical Simulations Validation

In order to validate the empirical life model for the FVM, a set of experiments was conducted using NACA 63018 blades at different toe angles, tip speed ratios and free stream velocities.

Because of the complex nature of the problem, an empirical lift model based on a theoretical foundation in approximating the known asymptotic limit values was developed to account for the dynamic stall behavior.
