Test case data
Hi all,

I am running a test case of NACA - 0012 airfoil at zero angle of attack and Re=5000 for an incompressible flow. I am not able to validate my results, as the validation data is not available with me. I am in need of the data like, sfc, cp and drag, for the above mentioned test case. I request the community to help me in getting the data or the link from which i can download the data.

thanks in advance...

Re: Test case data
Hi all,

If any one know abt the flow feature characteristics for this test case like: 1: Flow will separate or not? as we have seen only the compressible flow results, its not conclusive whether the flow will seperate in an incompressible flow. 2: The seperation distance from the leading edge of the airfoil. 3: Any computational results if any one come across, i think it will be more useful for my validation.

Ill be grateful if u can help me in this regard... Thanks in advance...
