Default Gambit 3d airfoil
Victor Cano
Posts: n/a
Hi everyone, im almost new in gambit ive been modeling 2d airfoils for 2 semesters now, but now my professor wants 3d airfoils, so I went to Geometry command then to Volume command and sweep faces and I gave it volume, ok. But know what do I have to do so I can transfer this airfoil to Fluent...Do i have to mesh the edges again? or make new faces...I am a little lost any help will be apreciated... Thanx Victor

i have created 3d airfoil (extruding 2d airfoil mesh). but when i transfer it to fluent then it doesn't take some boundary zones. where is the mistake? In case of 3d airfoil there is end effects of airfoil i.e. induced velocity due to vortex. My question is oes fluent will take that into account?
