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...

I know it is late, but I hope it helps...

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

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...
