Default blade - coating
Posts: n/a

have any of you ever simulated coating on a turbine blade? If so how did you mesh the thin layers, I'm having problems doing that with Gambit. Thanks

Dont model thin layers explicitly otherwise your mesh will be huge. Use Fluent with modified wall boundary conditions/surface roughness etc. Just do structured decomposed meshing in Gambit for correct Y+ then worry about thin coatings in Fluent with above or UDF's.
