 December 21, 2014, 07:44 having trouble implementing airfoil with Wall Slip condition #1 New Member   Mohammad Hossein Khozaei Join Date: Nov 2011 Posts: 7 Rep Power: 5 Hello every body I need to solve my problem on airfoil with wall Slip condition. as i found, i can put this condition in 2 ways: 1. enter a wall velocity 2. enter specified shear on the wall In both the ways i need to enter velocity or specified shear with 2 components (x & y). The problem is, as the normal-vector of the wall is changing around the airfoil and the wall-velocity (and specified shear) are both tangential to the wall, I need to have a local-coordinate-system in each point of the airfoil-wall to enter the velocity due to the local-coordinate-systems. (or something like this) (I don't have the Airfoil-wall-equation) (I have to check the results in different slip lengths, 10% slip to 50%, not 100% or free slip) (and then it must be solved in a complicated 3-D geometry, so i can't split the wall into some semi-linear parts.) I don't know how to do this and whether it works or not. can any body help me ? please. I really appreciate it. PS. In easy words, 10% slip means velocity on the wall is 10% of free-stream (tangential to the wall) (wall-slip-condition can be defined by 3 (related) parameters: 1. specified shear 2. wall-velocity 3. slip length, the definitions are available in literature, but in CFX and Fluent i just can enter specified shear or wall velocity, you can find them in wall-boundary-detail under cover of mass and momentum) (to avoid mathematical equation it's better to define a wall velocity than specified shear) Last edited by Khozaei4000; December 22, 2014 at 02:00. Reason: Make it more complete.

It's not a free-slip problem.
i have to check the results in different slip lengths (10% slip to 50%, not 100% or free slip)

Can you define mathematically want you want to do? In other words, if you want 10% slip, what actually is 10% slip defined as? And why do you want to use this model?

in easy words, 10% slip means velocity on the wall is 10% of free-stream (tangential to the wall) (wall-slip-condition can be defined by 3 (related) parameters: 1. specified shear 2. wall-velocity 3. slip length, the definitions are available in literature, but in CFX and Fluent i just can enter specified shear or wall velocity, you can find them in wall-boundary-detail under cover of mass and momentum) (to avoid mathematical equation it's better to define a wall velocity than specified shear)

I have to find influence of different percentage of wall-slip on Drag 'n Lift forces, velocity 'n pressure fields, etc. and the influence on some other parameters in complicated 3D model. that's it.

Therefore you know the velocity to apply at the wall. You can make sure it is tangential to the wall using the normal_x, normal_y and normal_z variables.

Thank you dear,
how can i obtain normal_x, normal_y and normal_y variables?
is there a CEL? can i write an expression for them ?

there is no such variables in CFX-Pre.

The solver has all the variables. So stick them in CFX-Pre, ignore the warning/error about variable names and see if the solver accepts them.

I'll give a try.
