Oscillating airfoil
I want to simulate a Oscillating NACA0012. How do i go about the problem setup. I have run steady state model at different angles of attack and compared it with theoretical values. How should I change the mesh in gambit. and basically set up an unsteady flow pblm :confused:

There are two ways in which you can oscillate your airfoil. First, use rigid body motion of the grid, and second the deformation of the airfoil grid to accommodate the motion of the airfoil. Check the fluent manual for moving mesh examples and you would want to follow the tutorial given in there.
