 April 10, 2007, 04:14 NACA 0015 3D #1 H.A.S Guest   Posts: n/a Sponsored Links Hello , I just want to ask how can i get the required points to draw NACA 0015 as a 3dimensional surfaces . I want to use these points on analysing a Wind turbine on fluent and GAmbit . I surfed on google but i found nothing . I will be thankful if someone can tell me where ? Thanks in advance H.A.S

It is located here: http://www.ae.uiuc.edu/m-selig/ads/coord_database.html You can import these points into a CAD package or into Gambit and create the airfoil outline, you'd then have to add twist, sweep, etc. on your own to complete the 3-D profile.

If so, Your problem may be that you have an odd number of elements on one the edges of the airfoil - to change this in GAMBIT, slightly tweak the edge mesh size and watch how many nodes it creates on the edge.

I have a lot of problems first at all I have created the matrix.dat of the points' coordinates (n° 300 points) using the wording x y z, where z=0.0 for the front face of the blade. After that, I use the command NURS to link the vertex but Gambit use a very inaccurate interpolation: the line that it creates it's faraway from the vertex point. This is only the first problem..it's my pleasure to receive your help or advices to resolve the geometry! thanks

So I would try to use Gambit. Can any one share me Gambit software? many thanks! --------------------------- trieuckgt@gmail.com or MSN: trieu.dut@live.com
