 October 25, 2011, 14:25 @edward thank you #61 New Member   praveen gupta Join Date: Oct 2011 Posts: 3 Rep Power: 8 i have checked the grid and it doesn't have any problem i guess... is there any method to find the errors in grid??? Solution for NACA 0006 is converging for 3 different angle of attacks @ 0,2,4 degrees after that if i increase further the angle of attack it is not converging earlier my residual values are 1e-06 and please explain about k-epsilon model (give me some reference links to follow) please do reply its important for me

You have to check the mesh in fluent "CHECK GRID" that is the first step if you want to simulate correct!! and fluent will tell you if your case is correct or not!!! Later on! check the tutorial number one for gambit!, you will find how can check the quality of the mesh; you work with 2D meshes so you coudnt have deformation volumes if your work with 3D your deformation volumens should be <0.8 After that, check the boundary layer specially in the trailing edge, in all the profile; becouse some nodes have problems with the surface of the profile!! Make a Zoom in the profile surface!!! That comfirms if incrase the angle of atacks you will have reversible flow!! Book An introduction to computational flud dynamics The finite volume method H.K. Versteeg and W. Malalasekera The book is easy to understand I work with Turbomachinery; with turbine blades!! is diferent and more complicated but also is similar I hope this work!!! Greetings

Attached is the Tin and Blk files. Thank you.
in a CFD point of view you should preserve the wake intensity behind your model by refining the mesh in the tail. it will affect your solution later

Icem won't let you name it that way, check you boundaries, how they are exported, you will find more post if you google that error __________________ Regards, New to ICEM CFD, try this document --> https://goo.gl/KAOIwm Ali

 October 11, 2012, 04:22 #66 New Member   Join Date: Oct 2012 Posts: 2 Rep Power: 0 thanks, I donīt thinks this is whatīs is wrong in my case. ill give it a try in google also. just to inform, this is actually a tutorial that I did but not being able to open the mesh in fluent...here is the link just in case anyone wants to see it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6wQPeBpvwCk
