gmd is on a distinguished road
Hi all,

Urgent help needed! I am looking to simulate vortex shedding around an airfoil at around 90 degrees angle of attack.

I am quite new to FLUENT, but I have managed to run some simulations and produce some vortices downstream of the flow, but I am not sure how to quantify this.

What kind of iteration settings would be appropriate for modeling this using the SST k-omega model?

Any help would be amazing, thanks!
