Wind turbine placement?

I live in a rural area and we have two blue Harvestor grain silos. One has a 25 foot diameter and is 90 feet tall and the other is 4 feet from it with a 20 foot diameter and is 70 feet tall. I was wondering if it would be possible to mount a wind turbine on top of the taller one. I don't know much about turbulence though, if there would be too much? Or how high it would have to be off to clear the turbulence? This is my first try at it, I was going to try a treadmill motor, something small

Pulsejet engine turbulence model

Hello everyone i have conducted several pulsejet engine tests but today i tried to simulate a pulseejet engine in Ansys fluent 14.0 and here it is. This is a K-e model. The peak pressure at the instant of combustion was 2.5atm. The maximum velocity reached is about 800m/s and the peak temp was about 3000K.
