3d Simulation Of Wind Turbine Rotors At Full Scale. Part Ii: Fluid–Structure Interaction Modeling With Composite Blades, Y. Bazilevs, Ming-Chen Hsu, J. Kiendel, R. Wuchner, K. U. Bletzigner

Ming-Chen Hsu

In this two-part paper, we present a collection of numerical methods combined into a single framework, which has the potential for a successful application to wind turbine rotor modeling and simulation. In Part 1 of this paper we focus on: 1. The basics of geometry modeling and analysis-suitable geometry construction for wind turbine rotors; 2. The fluid mechanics formulation and its suitability and accuracy for rotating turbulent flows; 3. The coupling of air flow and a rotating rigid body. In Part 2, we focus on the structural discretization for wind turbine blades and the details of the fluid–structure interaction ...
