Title: AeroDyn V15.04: Design Tool for Wind and MHK Turbines

Abstract

AeroDyn is a time-domain wind and MHK turbine aerodynamics module that can be coupled into the FAST version 8 multi-physics engineering tool to enable aero-elastic simulation of horizontal-axis wind turbines. AeroDyn V15.04 has been updated to include a cavitation check for MHK turbines, and can be driven as a standalone code to compute wind turbine aerodynamic response uncoupled from FAST. Note that while AeroDyn has been updated to v15.04, FAST v8.16 has not yet been updated and still uses AeroDyn v15.03.
