Helicoidal VAWT design

Hello everyone,

Is it possible to design a helicoidal VAWT in QBlade (like in the picture) because I do not know how to do it yet?

Kind regards,

Hi Brecht,

such a turbine cannot be modeled since it’s a drag driven (savonious) design. Modeling a savonious rotor requires a finite volume approach which is something that QBlade cannot do.

Oke, thanks! Do you maybe know software where it is possible to model drag-driven VAWTs?
