Hi everybody,
Is a shock on an airfoil a little bit more dissipated along the airfoil with an unstructured mesh than with a structured mesh ??

Thanks in advance!!

By right, it shouldn't be like that. Some times, it could be the way you plot the results that can interfere with the smoothness of the plots. A good unstructured mesh should be able to produce results similar to the structured mesh result.
