Hi there, im currently an undergraduate looking at trying out different airfoils for analysis to do with tidal turbine blades. I'm currently researching previous papers about blades that have been designed and they talk about using BEMT. They give all parameters required but I don't know how to input these or get results anywhere. The graphs/ answers they recieved were chord length(m)vs(r/R) and blade twist angle(degrees) vs (r/R).
The whole process is somewhat confusing at the moment and is causing me to stress a lot!
Any help on the matter would be much appreciated!
Thank you :D
