quasi steady analysis of 2d airfoil (pitching)
I'm trying to do a subsonic analysis of an airfoil undergoing pitching motion using Fluent. Could anyone tell me how to get started or where to find help? It is part of the analysis on a flapping insect wing. At this point I want to simplify the problem as much as possible.
Do I need to learn how to create a dynamic mesh in order to solve this problem. Eventually I'd like to perform unsteady analysis (pitch and plunge). Help is greatly appreciated. Thanks 
Re: quasi steady analysis of 2d airfoil (pitching)
Hey man, You need to read the Fluent Toutorial Manual. Please see the contents. The first good example is in section 31 "Modelling external compressible flow" that exactly related to Airfoil. After that I encourage you to read the example in section 41 that is "Modelling unsteady compressible flow" that you will learn a lot about unsteady form of solution. At the end to learn the Dynamic mesh please read the section 111, " Using Dynamic Meshes". If you want anything please contact me.(hossesf@auburn.edu) Have a good night, Farid,
