 January 27, 2010, 23:54 NACA 0012 Different Angles of Attack #1 New Member   Arvind Join Date: Mar 2009 Posts: 15 Rep Power: 16 Hi All, I want to perform flow simulations over NACA 0012 at different angles of attack. The method i followed is as below X component of velocity, u = V cos(alpha) Y component of velocity, v = V sin(alpha) where alpha is the desired Angle of Attack. I gave this conditions of velocities in the Inlet boundary condition which i have modelled as the left vertical plane . Is this method correct??????

Inlet: u = V cos(alpha) v = V sin(alpha) w = 0 Outlet & opening: Static pressure: sea level

Hi Attesz; can you upload the picture if you have it still, please?
