 March 9, 2012, 12:00 #3 Member   EMAVI V SURYA SAMPATH Join Date: Aug 2011 Location: Malaysia Posts: 83 Rep Power: 7 I know how to design a flow over an airfoil. Im a working on the methods for getting efficient lift. So increasing the flow over the blades and boundary layer control are some methods which inc the aerodynamic lift. I'm asking, how can i implement these methods in my modelling i.e in FLUENT or GAMBIT.!

Now it's somewhat clearer but still reeally vague. What do you mean with "increasing the flow over the blades" and how are you thinking to control the boundary layer? By airfoil shaping? By the use of turbulators if needed?

 March 9, 2012, 12:19 #6 Member   EMAVI V SURYA SAMPATH Join Date: Aug 2011 Location: Malaysia Posts: 83 Rep Power: 7 yea.! method of preventing separation consists of supplying additional energy to the slow moving air in the boundary layer over the airfoil. This can be done by introducing higher velocity air from inside the body. But how do i do these all in GAMBIT n FLUENT.!! ????

In Fluent you will be able to set up the velocity magnitude and direction coming from the hole. I hope that this helps! Rob

And one more thing, how can i energize the turbulent boundary layer over an airfoil.?? Thanks in advance. and can u let me know ur email id, so that i can i mail u my work for getting your guidance.!! Thanks in Advance

 March 9, 2012, 12:50 #9 Member   Join Date: Nov 2011 Posts: 82 Rep Power: 6 I don't know exactly how many othe ways exist to energize the boundary layer but I'm pretty sure that a small tour on google/library will give you the answers. If you need any further help search for answers online and on the forum and if you don't find any answers open a new thread. You will have more chances to get answers than relying only to me (that I'm actually quite busy). Cheers! Rob
