LSC is on a distinguished road
pls shed some light as to which trailing edge should I use during meshing. I need to run the simulations in CFX. I encountered problem sweeping for the case with a common vertex for Upper and Lower surface at the trailing edge.
The error message goes like this: "Error: ACIS error 95034: Attempt to sweep a non-manifold face". Previously I have no problem sweeping for the case of a finite thickness at the Trailing edge.

Trailing edge with common vertex.

Finite Thickness at trailing edge

Please advice..
