I was able to do airfoil wake capturing in a better way than the conventional C-type approach with the nesting tool option in GridPro.

The nesting tool helped to finely capture the airfoil wake without shoot-up in cell count and increase in aspect ratio. The tool did rapid coarsening of the cells in the normal direction to the wake in a very efficient way.

It was fun doing this looping topology.

Great Work Ravindra,


Had the airfoil a sharp T.E. or it had a blunt one?

Could you please share your files on that?


Thanks,
