Re: Wanted: University to predict airfoil coefficients

Dear Marshall, We have been working on the combined research (international research center and Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics) with the group of scientists from Jiangsu Key Laboratory of Hi-Tech Research for Wind Turbine Design. Other contributions: Turbulent flow simulation of...

Re: Azimuth Angle of the Blade

Dear Daniel, In FAST v8, the azimuth angle is defined differently between the ElastoDyn and AeroDyn v15 modules. I agree that the azimuth angle in AeroDyn v15 is not currently well documented. In ElastoDyn, the azimuth angle is defined via input AzimB1Up, as documented in the old FAST User's Guide:...

Re: OpenFAST binary distribution

Dear Ole, The Simulink-FAST v8 interface has not yet been fully updated to support a Simulink-OpenFAST interface. This is an open issue in OpenFAST: https://github.com/OpenFAST/openfast project /issues/59 . That said, I know that NREL is currently working on this and I hope to see this issue resolv...

Re: Deciding mesh size and time step in Actuator Line Model simulations

Hello everyone, According to my (quite short) experience with ALM simulations of wind turbines, determination of the cell size in rotor plane and time step size plays an important role in the convergence and agreement with experimental measurements. There are many turbines in various sizes and oper...
