Default Airfoil simulation
Posts: n/a
Hi folks!!

I have to simulate a 2D airfoil. I generated the mesh and now I want to simulate it in CFX. Does anybody know a workshop or stuff like that which guides me trough the simulation. I donīt have any experience and so I would be glad if one could help me.

Thanks a lot in advance!!

Tutorial 8: Supersonic Flow Over a Wing Introduction

This tutorial includes:

Tutorial 8 Features

Overview of the Problem to Solve

Defining a Simulation in ANSYS CFX-Pre

Obtaining a Solution using ANSYS CFX-Solver Manager

Viewing the Results in ANSYS CFX-Post

If this is the first tutorial you are working with, it is important to review the following topics before beginning:

Setting the Working Directory

Changing the Display Colors

Unless you plan on running a session file, you should copy the sample files used in this tutorial from the installation folder for your software (<CFXROOT>/examples/) to your working directory. This prevents you from overwriting source files provided with your installation. If you plan to use a session file, please refer to Playing a Session File.

Sample files referenced by this tutorial include:



Tutorial 8 Features This tutorial addresses the following features of ANSYS CFX.
