This video shows the use of a genetic algorithm to develop VAWT wind turbine blades. One of the resulting blades is quite different and seems to simulate well. The breeding software was written in Perl, the display software Java, and the CFD software was OpenFoam.

More than 672 CPU hours went into the making of this video.

Note: I have since discovered I used the wrong viscosity for air on this experiment, so the results aren't valid for use on the earth. (Maybe Jupiter.)
