Where can I find an explanatory text on the su2 tutorials . The skeleton is there but when you want to generate the 2d plots in para view there is not much about this . A brief discussion of the objective of the tutorial and interpretation of the results would be of tremendous benefit to a ab initio user like me .

I am using solid edge to model the wing - a trial version of pointwise - su 2 and then para view. When trying to generate a grid questions arose regarding which turbulent solver to use etc and I can not find any overview of the options and a description of what they do to guide the choices .

Lastly has anyone used su2 to analyze stall progression on a 3d wing at Reynolds numbers in the 5 million region .

We appreciate your comments, but we have no plans at the moment to include explanations of paraview. Paraview is a completely separate code, and we do not have enough resources to maintain documentation of both SU2 and Paraview. If you can figure it out and would like to provide one for the community, it would be much appreciated.

All of the tutorials on the website do have an explanation of the objective of the tutorial. If you have specific places where they can be improved, please provide them.

Could you provide a more specific question? There are descriptions of several options in the tutorials. A full list of options can be seen in the config_structure.hpp source code.

Stall progression is difficult to analyze with a RANS model given the inaccuracies in turbulence models. I do not know if anyone has tried this.
