A Computational Investigation on the Blade Profile of Vertical Axis Fluid Turbine with Movable Double Streamline Vane

Jin Yang, Chanjun Meng, Yuxiang Tian, Hongqiang Liang, Chuan He


The computational investigation on the blade profile of the movable vanes at various angle of attack was used to obtain the shape of the vanes. The SIMPLE algorithm, the standard k-ɛ model, and the near-wall treatment were used to do computation. This method successfully obtained the flow fields of the blades, and the blade profile could be modified based on the flow fields.
