Velocity profile correct ?

Ran an analysis on an eppler airfoil at 10 m/s, the velocity near the surface is zero ??? Is it supposed to be like that ?
Model: Laminar, Pressure based

Did you apply the no-slip boundary condition on airfoil? If so then yes, velocity should approach 0 at solid boundaries.

Does it affect the final result , Lift, drag and pitching moment ?

Of course. It must.
