AeroDyn is a time-domain wind turbine aerodynamics module that has been coupled into the FAST version 8 multi-physics engineering tool to enable aero-elastic simulation of horizontal-axis wind turbines. AeroDyn can also be driven as a standalone code to compute wind turbine aerodynamic response uncoupled from FAST.
