Low-Reynolds number simulation
I try to reproduce a low-Reynolds number simulation in Fluent:
airfoil NACA2415 Reynolds number 200000 alpha 2.0 degree.
I use for validation the UIUC airfoil data base.
For starting the simulation I need the free stream speed. My question is if it is correct to extract the speed from the Reynolds number imposing constant density and viscosity:
Re=200000; miu=1.7894e-05; ro=1.225 and the chord=1.
For simulating an incompressible low-Reynolds flow it is sufficient to have the same Reynolds and incidence ?
Thanks in advance.
