    Abstract: Turbulent free surface flows are encountered in many hydraulic and water resources engineering problems. In this work, the CFD code "Fluent" is used to study the meshing effect on the hydrodynamic structure around water Darrieus rotor. This code is based on solving steady Navier-Stokes equations by a finite volume discretization model. The numerica... Show More
