Hi Dear Friends,
I'm doing the simulation of a flapping airfoil (Figure eight-like motion) with "Fluent" and it's related to Micro Aerial Vehicles (MAV's), i was wondering if you can give me some informations like:

1) what kind of flow is it? (2D or 3D, compressible or incompressible , laminar or turbulent , steady or transient? )

2) what kind of grid i should use? (static or moving grid , structural or unstructured?)

3) what kind of coordinate i should use? (descartian or spherical or cylindrical?)

4) Is This necessary to know the details of 2D Navier–Stokes equations in order to do the simulation with "Fluent" ?

my Email is : (( ))

thanks beforehand,
