I'm doing an analysis of a Delta wing at low speed ( when the airplane is landing) and I want to use Gambit to mesh the 3D Delta wing geometry. But I'm new to Gambit, so I'd like to ask you some questions

Here is my idea:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/74522469@N03/6712831701/

I divide the flow area into some blocks like they are in the image: for the view from above, we can see that there are 8 sections, and the same for the side view.

I'd like to have more mesh at the angles of delta wing. Thus, can you tell me how can i do it step by step ?

I don't know how to create those 8 sections. Should I create points then connect them by Virtual line ??

I only simulated a 2D Naca airfoil. But for this case, I don't know how to do. Please help me . I'm looking forward to seeing your reply.

Thank you in advance.

What do you mean by eight sections? Do you want to work on 2d?

This is the 3D drawing geometry. Although it's an incomplete drawing, but i hope it's not difficult to understand

do you have coordinates of your wing? If not create them MS Excel, then we can import them in gambit and after that we can start our process.
As I see there are total four points on 2-d section. Is there any taper or change of chord length?

looking down from above, the wing is a trapezoidal with the lengths of the parallel sides are 200mm and 2 mm, and the height is 172mm. The thickness of the wing is 2mm.
at present, there's no taper or change of chord length. I will count these ones in later simulation to compare.

Make four points : (0,0), (200,0), (99, 172), (101, 172) and copy them in z-direction with relative distance of 2 mm. Join them with 12 edges and then construct faces (6 faces in total). After this we shall discuss about the domain and meshing.

Thanks Far. I've already done that. So, what's the next step? Can u tell me the outline ?

flow is subsonic or supersonic? What is the objective of this study?

flow is subsonic. The goal of this study is to research about the Delta wing at low speed ( when airplane is landing). After the simulation by ANSYS, I will compare that result to the experimental result ( using wind tunnel, so the speed is about 10, 15, 30 m/s)

make hemisphere domain from wing to at least 15 chords upstream and then connect with circular cylinder domain with at least 25 chords downstream. This is necessary since Reynolds number is very low and I am excepting higher angle of attack (correct me if I am wrong). Then subtract the wing volume from this far field body.

For quick simulation you may create the 3D boundary layer on wing and meshing the rest of domain with tetra.

Flow is laminar, turbulent or transitional? Are you interested in resolving the separation? What other flow features are expected in flow?

I've already done the subtraction step. For the quick simulation, I can do it. However, I need to mesh the volume like the graphic which i sent above, but I don't know how to divide the flow domains like that to mesh them.

The flow is transitional and the AoA is high.

Some pictures of delta wing simulation on the internet:

The mesh topology you have just shown in above Fig. can be easily constructed and meshed within few minutes. I would like to suggest you to consider making the hemisphere in inlet region (as discussed above) in order to specify the high AOA.

I shall post some images and dbs file of your geometry today (if possible ).

Thanks Far. It looks great. Did u create it by Gambit? Can u send me the file plz?

And 1 more thing, the point is I don't know how to create those lines:


Thank you

Although meshing was done by ICEM but same topology can be easily created within GAMBIT (obviously with more work of making vertices, edge, faces and may be volumes).

I am also sharing ICEM files here

Hi

I am working on the same problem of delta wing but it is double-delta wing
I have meshed the surface of delta wing and the domain surface but getting problem on volume meshing of the domain......the problem is 32bit version ...? I need advice on this how to perform the meshing operation of the domain within 32bit limit......Using Gambit ,winxp,dual core,2gb

also please tell me how to take snapshot of this delta wing from gambit
