Basic steps meshing an airfoil [ICEM]
 
Hi,

i just started working with Ansys ICEM, and my frist try is meshing an airfoil. I would like to ve a structured mesh, but actually i dont know whats the best way to do it.
Could anyone give me some hints how to start? I would like to do it with a C grid, but dont know if this is the smartest way to do it. I already imported the profile and did the domain. But i m kind of lost how i should do the blocking with a C Grid Domain...
I already did it with a rectangular domain, but when i want to do an O-grid around the airfoil i just get error msgs that it wasnt possible to generate it :/
So if somebody already did it, i would be pleased if u could give me some hints! A picture of the blocking would be great, since this is my biggest problem atm.

Kind regards
Peter

I made a "how to" movie about this, well three parts actually.

They are on the ANSYS YouTube site...

Any chance of hosting these on an FTP or some other venue? Some of us have to comply with our web filters :(

Ftp...
 
Sure... Uploading now. It is a blind folder, so just combine the links (add the file name to the first part and then past into a browser)... I am keeping the links partial to prevent use by robots ;)

ftp://ftp.ansys.com/outgoing/simon/

and the files are...
