There are many research are study in vertical axis wind turbine blade, all research are concentrated on blade airfoil profile of National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA) with computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation. This review paper aims at to move forward in research on blade profile. I have studied paper from 2005-2014 in which I have critically analyzed some paper. At last my work deals with 3d analysis of wind turbine with fluid and solid interference using NACA profile parameters on fluent analysis with lift and drag force study. The aim of this literature is angle of attack, Lift coefficient, Drag coefficient, airfoil design and FSI analysis. Vertical axis wind turbine (VAWT) airfoils are characteristics permit to take advantage of wind in the regions where it has low speed and high turbulence. To analyze the effectiveness of a VAWT blade, methods of CFD are used to analysis of airfoil and lift and drag forces. This research is about the aerodynamic design of a VAWT blade using the analytical and FSI techniques for a small scale VAWT, which may be use for domestic purposes to power a single room. These forces which are very helpful for the evaluation of the structural integrity of the VAWT blade are then found to be in a close agreement with FSI results which are simulated using commercial software, ANSYS Fluent
