Aerodynamic Design & Analysis
Blade Element Momentum (BEM) theory software is used for the initial aerodynamic design of the wind turbine blades. DARcorporation engineers developed and customized the software to handle any type of wind turbine configuration and blade shape. Airfoil design and analysis software is used to analyze and design the airfoils used on the blades.
Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software tools are used to simulate rotation and quantify the full power curve of the wind turbine. Pressure distribution over the blades is calculated and torque (and thus energy) curves are constructed. Once the aerodynamic design is finalized, a wind tunnel model can be designed, constructed and tested. Aerodynamic Design & Analysis Brochure.
