Thanks

Thanks Pat ! Thanks Marshall !

I'll try. I mistake that the archieves maybe just some documents, hehe :)

How can we download AeroDyn, FAST and other design codes?

Hi,

Is there any restrictions to download these wonderful design codes ? I browsed the webpage, but can only found some achives.

regards,

Hi, Pat and everybody,

May I suggest that NREL prepare a list of airfoils, and state which one is in public domain, and which one is not ? This may save many people's searching works :)

Inflow Turbulence Standard

The natural inflow turbulence intensity varies from 5% to 40%, I take IEC61400-1 as reference and give the intensity value as 17% ( between max value of 18% and mini value of 16% according to IEC61400-1). I wish to know how everybody give your inflow turbulence conditions when you do your windturbin...

Thanks, Pat, I think that will be the only way to 'validate' the codes. I computed the performance of NREL S827 airfoil, there exits obvious difference between the data from NREL report and my results, with my analysis, I believe the reason is the Reynolds Number. But I don't have experiment data to...

Wind tunnel test of wind turbine ?

As we all know that the wind tunnel test can only test very limited Reynolds number scope flows around wind turbines, how would we validate the accuracy of our CFD works ?
