In the Pre-Analysis step, we'll review the following:
Similar to the previous method, but considering a rotating frame of reference for the hub.
In part 1 we only analyzed one position of the hub relative to the incoming wind, which might be an over-simplification. We also didn't account for the vortices generated by the blades passing upwind on the blades downstream.
All of these will be accounted in this Sliding Mesh method. In this case, Fluent will actually move all components of the geometry and solve a transient problem.
Similar to part 1, but now Fluent will iterate in each time step until it either converges, or reaches the maximum iterations per time step defined by the user.
We expect a similar distribution of Velocity, Vorticity and Turbulent KE. We also expect the Moment coefficient to be oscillatory.
The geometry was incorporated into the project when we dragged the Solution cell from the MFR project into the Sliding Mesh project.
Again, this has already been set. We don't need to import the mesh again.
