You have to set the mesh up to have the AOA you want, and you have to set the boundary conditions up to give the Re number you want. Glenn Horrocks

But this is a far upstream condition. So with the upwind potential influenz of your wing the real angle of attack will be a little bit different. Greetings Sven

Hi,

Try to generate one mesh to each AoA. It is more secure.
If you will really use a 3D wing simulation, you will have to change the aspect ratio of the wing, to account for the finite width effects.
