Abstract

A viscous lift theorem is derived from a momentum balance and Stokes' theorem around one section of a wind turbine blade. The theorem is a generalization of the classical Kutta-Zhukovsky lift theorem and is validated for 2D attached and separated flow. The application of the viscous lift theorem within a coupled Navier-Stokes/Vortex-Panel solver gives insight into the complex 3D aerodynamics pertinent to wind turbines.
