Effect of NumGrid_Z and NumGrid_Y

Hi everyone, I got a question about the effect of parameters NumGrid_Z and NumGrid_Y in the TurbSim input file, which are the number of grid points to generate the inflow turbulence in the vertical direction and in the horizontal direction. My question is how would different input values of these tw...

Re: File Conversion (From FAST v6 to FAST v8)

Hi Bonnie,

Thank you for your information. I can run FAST v8 through Windows command prompt now. However, I got the warning message says that Blade #1 element #4 is supersonic. Other elements are likely supersonic as well. Could I ask about why this happens? Thank you very much!

Re: File Conversion (From FAST v6 to FAST v8)

Hi Bonnie,

When I run FAST from a Windows command prompt and type

'FAST [FAST input file name].fst' in the windows command window,

it says that 'FAST' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

Thank you very much.

Re: File Conversion (From FAST v6 to FAST v8)

Dear Jason, No, it doesn't. I run FAST through Matlab and after my code processes the execution command of FAST in Matlab, nothing shows on the command window of Matlab("FAST terminated normally." does not appear), FAST does not generate any files such as *.sum or *.outb either. Thank you ...

Re: File Conversion (From FAST v6 to FAST v8)

Dear Jason,

The strange thing is that I did not get error information, it seems that FAST did execute but it just did not generate any output file as it did when I was using FAST v7. Thank you very much.

Sincere regards,
Qiyun

Re: File Conversion (From FAST v6 to FAST v8)

Hi Bonnie, It seems that I have successfully transformed FAST v7 input file into FAST v8 format input file thanks to your instructions. However, when I replace my original FAST v7 data and input files with FAST v8 format data and input files generated by the function 'ConvertFAST7to8(inputfile,newDi...

Re: File Conversion (From FAST v6 to FAST v8)

Dear Bonnie, Thank you very much for your reply. However, after I add the FAST SimulationTool box to my MATLAB path, I still got error information: GetFastPar:: Parameter TwrFile not found. Warning: Inputs must be character arrays or cell arrays of strings. > In ConvertFAST7to8 at 95 Error using tex...

Re: RunIEC accessibility

Hi Jason, Thank you very much for your quick reply. Can I also ask about how to set input variables of wave conditions like wave height, peak-spectral period and wave direction for FAST without RunIEC script? Now I can only set input variable of wind speed, but besides wind speed, I do not find the ...

RunIEC accessibility

Hi, I am a student who begins working on wind turbine fatigue load analysis. I am trying to use TurbSim, FAST and Mlife to conduct fatigue load estimation considering input environmental variables as wind speed, wave height, peak-spectral period and wave direction and I want to see the effect of the...
