This might be an obvious question, sorry if it is! Should the cell Reynolds no. equal the Reynolds number at which the model (airfoil) is being run? My cell Reynolds numbers are way smaller than the model Reynolds no., based on (rho)(U)(d)/mew Thanks FP

The cell Re number is based in the height of the cell - so normally this value will vary from the Re one at which the model is being run.
