2D wind turbine airfoil (snappyHexMesh OR blockMesh)
 
Hello foamers ,,

i want to simulate boundary layer of turbulent flow around a 2D wind turbine airfoil ,, i think i have to make an STL file and use snappyHexMesh ,, is it the simplest way to do such thing

and how to create the STL file i want with my wind turbine blade actual dimensions ,, can i make it using paraview ?

actually i found that blockMesh can do that stuff (as in airFoil2D) , but it is much complicated than snappyHexMesh , and if i got the blockMesh of a given airfoil i can't change it to get my airfoil dimensions (large wind turbine section)

does any one have a 2D wind turbine airfoil file in STL format ?
