Hi!

I am trying a simulate a the rotation of a wells turbine (a turbine that is completely symmetrical) as a result of air being pushed upon it. I took a single blade of my turbine and quickly ran a simulation of a wind at 4mph hitting the surface (my project is linked down below) and set a *forces and moments* graph using all the faces of the turbine blade. Now I am left with a total x, y, and z force. Using these values, can I calculate the rotational velocity (or angular velocity) of this turbine? I am hoping to take the force in the y direction and manipulate it somehow to find rotational velocity in terms of mass and radius.

I also already tried running a simulation with the full turbine itself rotating which didnâ€™t help me much.

I hope my concern makes sense.

Thanks,

JJ
