Hi all,


I would like to know if it's possible to define the angle of attack for airfoil flow simulation as a parameter so cfx would run in a series consecutively

Using parametric modelling in workbench. Look at the workbench tutorials for how to do this.

You can write a CFX-Pre macro,and change the parameter every time you run the macro.

siw will become famous soon enough
Isn't a macro more work than is necessary?

Glenn said about the parameter feature in Workbench, so can you just run the required freestream velocity components (to give your required angles of attack) through that?
