ICEM Hexa_Airfoil with 2 sharp edges blocking?
I have been trying to mesh this airfoil in 2D after I did the youtube tutorial a couple of times.
This blade is from an automotive cooling fan.
Here's the profile
Here it is after the O-grid and splits
Then I thought I could just collapse both edges and blocks at the tips similar to the sharp trailing edge from the tutorial.
I did and I'm getting this..
From the last picture, the 2 airfoil sides merge to one after I collapse both blocks at the edges..
Am I missing something or is what I am trying to do fundamentally wrong?
I would appreciate some help..
-basically you can go for any profile around the airfoil and split it to generate the mesh
what are your objectives?
You need quarter O-grid
See these threads:
Also try simple approach:
your blocking is not good... look at thi thread :
Thanks guys, quite a bit of reading there to do.
Will make a few attempts and post back.
Thanks a lot!
Ok guys, managed to mesh the airfoil successfully. The approach from the trough thread was the most applicable.
I looked at quarter o-grids and y-grids, however it wouldn't let me create them in 2D.
Well, probably with a few smart splits I could have made a smth similar but anyway,,
I'm sure I'll find this approach useful once I move on to 3D modelling.
Thanks to all!
However quarter ogrid can be used for 2d or 3d
