Abstract

in this paper NACA 4412 airfoil profile is conside red for analysis of wind turbine blade. Geometry of the airfoil is created using GAMBIT 2.4.6. And CFD analysis is carried out using FLUENT 6.3.26 at various angles of attack from 0 ̊ to 12 ̊. Variations of pressure coefficient are plotted in form of contour for 1 ×10 5 Reynolds number.
