Hello
I did one simulation of incompressible flow over a pitching airfoil at Re=12000 using openFoam solver. For example, the velocity contour at one angle of attack is as attachment pic. As you can see, flow has a lot of stagnation point which may not seem correct physically. Is there aerodynamic justification for this streamline? In addition, the solution has been validated in terms of aerodynamic forces.
thanks.

I use this dynamicMeshDict:

dynamicFvMesh dynamicMotionSolverFvMesh;

motionSolverLibs ("libfvMotionSolvers.so");

solver displacementLaplacian;

diffusivity inverseDistance (airfoil);
