I am a german student in mechanical engineering and I am working on a project concerning vertical axis wind turbines (VAWT). As a starting point I managed to set up a case very similar to the one in another post in this discussion group: Rotating region and mesh
It is running but not giving me reliable results yet.
According to the recommendations given in the post mentioned above I tried to make a 2D setup.
First I made sketches and boundary patches in Inventor 2013 and tried to launch Simulation CFD from there, but that didn't work. Then I opened the assembly in Fusion and launched Simulation CFD from there.
Now I could assign materials (including Rotating Region), boundary conditions, mesh etc. and start the simulation.
Problem is that the solver always stops unexpectedly when trying to create the rotation interpolation data.
(At least that's what I understand.)
It would be a great help if somebody could take a look at the support file I attached and point me to the mistake(s) I am making!!
Post both your inventor and inventor Fusion files. I am curious why it wouldn't load from inventor.
Sorry for the late reply!
Unfortunately I was overwriting the corresponding inventor and fusion files when I kept trying to make it work.
But I include files that are showing the same behaviour.
Many thanks in advance!!
