Simpliest way to run airfoil simulation diff AOA
 
hi,

i need to simulate a naca0012 airfoil at different AOA at Re=2000. what's the fastest way of doing it. I wonder if i can rotate the whole grid at different AOA to do it. The BC at inlet is just kept at u=1. Is it possible?

btw, I used to fix the grid and modify the inlet velocity to their components ie at AOA=7deg, u=1*cos(7), v=1*sin(7). I also changed the force calculation to x=1*cos(7),v=1*sin(7) for drag and the opposite for lift

thanks!
