Simulating torque generated by a subsea propeller

Dear All,

 

I am trying to optimise the design of turbine blades to be used on a subsea tidal turbine. In order to do this I require to be able to simulate the torque generated by my rotor hub as a pre-selected velocity of water passes the structure (hence rotating the blades.)

 

However I have reached the limit of my knowledge in SolidWorks and cannot simulate this as yet.

 

Anyone know of any possible methods or tips?

 

I have attached a screenshot for reference.

 

Thank you in advance.
