Respected Sir /Madam,


I already simulate the 6DOF Mesh motion simulation in my university.

I want to calculate the rpm of the turbine. I don't know how to calculate the rpm from the post-processing.

I seen all tutorial regarding 6DOF on youtube but not getting the proper answer.

Thanks Peter.  

The rotation rate will be a function of the force on the blades and resistance of the generator (or whatever the blades are attached to). Force reports can be found in Fluent, and I'd look at the moments.
