Supersonic aerofoil help
 
Hi,

I have started a university project looking to design and model a supersonic wing for future supersonic civil aircraft.

I am new to CFD modelling and was just wondering if anybody had tips on what functions to use in Star CCM+ V7 when modelling 2D supersonic flow over aerofoils? I have been through the tutorials but they only stretch to transonic flow.

If you had any tips with mesh generation also I would greatly appreciate it!

Thanks in advance,
Ben

I have only been able to apply a fine mesh around the aerofoil using a volumetric region around it, but wondered if anybody could give me some tips how to use the mesh growth function to improve the mesh quality close to the aerofoil wall?

Thanks
