Hi guys..i want to model the flow over an airfoil using FLUENT for my experimental research project. I am particularly interested in seeing leading edge laminar separation and the ensuing separation bubble and the associated vortex field induced. Is FLUENT capable of doing that?

If you ensure that you have around 15-20 points inside the boundary layer, you should be able to resolve the LEV.

FLUENT can be used and the boundary layers around the leading edge should be fine enough .

How to create the geometry for the leading edge part please? if only the data for pressure side and suction side is available.
