    Abstract: Numerical simulation was achieved to study the aerodynamic characteristics around horizontal axis wind turbine of Rutland 913 type. Our study has been focus on the wedging angle effect. From application of the commercial computational fluid dynamics code "Fluent", the distribution of the velocity fields and static pressure was presented in differen... Show More
