O-grid or Polar-grid for airfoil mesh
I want to simulate the flow around an airfoil, and I want to mesh the domain in an o-grid (or polar grid), in order to conveniently simulate the flow for different angles of attack.
My problem is mostly at the trailing edge, where I get the cells very skewed.
I want to mesh the trailing edge like in the screenshot.
Does anyone have ideas/suggestions on how to implement such mesh with blockMesh/gmsh or any other open source mesh generator?
Certainly doable using Salome.
With a bit of clever thinking you can make a python script that takes XFoil profiles and makes a macro for Salome.
The end result will look something like the following.
Could you post a screenshot of the far domain? is it a circular or square domain?
What about the trailing edge? is it blunt or sharp?
Hi its a circular domain and the trailing edge is blunt.
