Physical and Numerical Modeling Open Source Files and Datasets for 1:6 Scale Reference Model 2 (RM2) Cross-Flow Turbine


This submission includes Github links to open source files and data sets, including the numerical model, CACTUS, input files, source code and output files, CAD files of the 1:6 scale model DOE's RM2 cross-flow turbine, power performance data and wake flow measurements from the 1:6 scale model turbine collected at the University of New Hampshire, including experimental measurements of torque, thrust (drag), angular velocity, and carriage speed, which were used to generate plots of power coefficient and thrust (drag) coefficient vs. tip-speed-ratio.
