aircraft with helix simulation
Hi guys,

I try to simulate a 3D aircraft with a helix. I don't know how to work with the helix! I have to create a dynamic mesh for it? Do you have any idea?
Is it possible not to take into consideration the helix? I want to compute Cl and Cd of the aircraft for different angles of attack!

Thanks a lot!

Maybe, i can use moving reference frame! What are the dimensions of the moving reference frame zone? My problem described could be solved as steady-state flow?
