AeroDyn Driver

Postby Sam.Ramsahoye » Sun Nov 08, 2020 9:11 am

Hello,

Would it be possible to make available an AeroDyn v15 driver windows executable? I tried to follow the links online but unfortunately they are broken while the NREL site is being updated.

Best,
Sam

Hi Sam,

The old archive of AeroDyn v15.04 from FAST v8.16 is available on my Google drive: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/ ... sp=sharing.

That said, there have been many improvements made to AeroDyn v15 since that release, all of which are available in the OpenFAST repository on github: https://github.com/OpenFAST/openfast. But while we have provided precompiled Windows executables of OpenFAST, we have not provided Windows executables of the various module-level drivers in the OpenFAST repository.

Hi Jason,

Thanks very much, really appreciate it. I ordinarily work in a Linux environment where it is easy for me to compile OpenFAST, however I'm restricted to Windows for my current task. I had been calling a Fast V8.exe with all of the DOFs turned off to isolate AeroDyn but it felt clunky.

Best,
Sam
