In this work, we are interested on the numerical and experimental investigations of a NACA2415 airfoil wind turbine placed in an open wind tunnel. The study of the meshing effect on the numerical results was developed using a commercial CFD code based on the resolution of the Navier-Stokes equations in conjunction with the standard k-ε turbulence model. These equations were solved by a finite volume discretization method. The developed numerical results are compared with experimental results to choose the adequate meshing.
