Step by step guide
Step 2 — First, the blades need to be transformed from the cylinder- or disk-like arrangement to a straight rectangular block. This is done by the filter Turbo Unwrap. You should see the icon of the filter in the toolbar. Note that the filter is available (i.e. coloured and clickable) only when the data selected in “Pipeline browser” are of the type “Multi-block Dataset” (see panel “Information”, section “Statistics”).
Figure: Settings of the Turbo Blade Post / Turbo Unwrap filter for transformation of blades of the pump.
Figure: Pressure distribution around the blade for a given height (i.e. relative distance from the hub to the shroud) constructed with the aid of the plugins of Turbo Blade Post toolset. The horizontal axis shows the transformed Y axis, which corresponds to the normalized inlet-to-outlet direction position (for given hub-to-shroud distance and angular position). The vertical axis displays the value of the pressure as computed by TCFD using OpenFOAM.
