Default Low Reynolds number for airfoil
Posts: n/a
I'm trying to find any published data with plot of Reynolds number vs Drag coefficient(i.e Re<10,000). Could any one mention any experimental data to me cause i'm using Fluent package which whenever i use high RE the cpu time doesn't allow me to continue iterating for long. Thanks

Are you sure? The Reynolds numbers around 10,000 occur on wings of little birds!

I found the explenation of Kroo interesting I found at:

Bird aerodynamics is done by:

and Martin Hepple gives some hints on Aerodynamics of model airplaines which fly at very low Re-numbers too:
