I am using the inviscid solver in Ansys Fluent to solve a 3D rectangular planform wing, with a chord of 1 metre, semi span of 8 metres and using a NACA0012 aerofoil profile. Inlet velocity = 29.5069 m/s (Mach 0.1 at 216.65K).
Boundary conditions: Wall (Wing), Symmetry (Domain Walls), Velocity Inlet (Around the domain).
At 5 degrees angle of attack, I am obtaining values of CL and CD of 0.512 and 0.006, respectively.
I have used XFLR, to analyse a 3D wing using the viscous Lifting Line Theory method. The values i get from XFLR are CL=0.5051 and CD=0.0145.
The CD from XFLR is both the profile drag and the induced drag. So using the lifting line equation for induced drag
(CD,i = (CL^2)/pi*AspectRatio*SpanEfficiency)
the CD,i = 0.01252
This shows a 52% error from the result I obtained from Fluent compared to XFLR.
Does anyone know why I am getting such a large error in CD?
This is a major issue for me, as I am trying to analyse the affect of wing tip blowing to reduce the induced drag on a wing.
If anyone could shed some light my problem, I would very much appreciate it.
Nevermind, I solved the problem.
