I'm studying VAWT wind turbine with Fluent using dynamic mesh 6DOF, but I don't known how to calculate RPM and torque.

The turbine rotate normally with the wind I put.

How are you setting the 6DOF to move with the wind?  RPM will be a rate of rotation, so is a report, torque is down to the force on the blades.
