 October 20, 2006, 02:07 2D-simulation of flow #1 Jesper SÃ¸rensen Guest   Posts: n/a Hey Im a an konstruction ingineer student from Denmark, and I have a qustion regarding: "How to make a 2D-simulation of windflow around i.e an airfoile profile??" I have no problem setting up 3D simulations in a windtunnel, but do not know how to do the simulation i 2D - Please help! Thanks in advance!! \\Jesper

On a wind tunnel, clearly option (b) is most feasible. Hope this helps Regards, Ganesh

The model has to have a specific size! The problem is how to "draw", so to speak, the 2D model in the CFX program-place it in a windtunnel, and then generate a 2d mesh for the problem in hand! \\Jesper

Get the coordinates of the airfoil, and enerate the airfoil using a suitable spline fit. Then generate a frafield, say 10-20 chords away and mesh the closed domain thereby produced. This mesh can then be used to simulate the flow past the airfoil. 2. Generate the three dimensional wing and a suitable farfield, these now being 3d rather than 2d. To simulate the 2D problem, we need to eliminate the three dimesionality effects, which can be achieved by using periodic BCs at the ends (it is as if you kept endplates when doing experiments). I believe you are looking out for Option 2 Hope this helps Regards, Ganesh
