Airfoil simulation using moving wall

Hi to all! The conventional procedure to compute the aerodynamic coefficients for an airfoil is to define the airfoil as a solid stationary wall, and define an incoming velocity at different angles of attack in the far field. I have been trying something a bit different, leave the conditions in the far field with 0 m/s, and instead, define the airfoil as a moving solid boundary, using a velocity in the opposite direction. I was hoping to find, instead of the always "normal" streamlines along the profile, the real flow fiel of an airfoil as it moves through a stationary fluid. Although the relative "velocity" between fluid and body remains the same, the values for lift and drag are completely different (and obviously false for the case of the moving boundary).

I´m trying this as a preliminary simulation of the interaction of two bodies with a relative velocity, so I wanted to leave one of them stationary, and give the other one a relative wall velocity, but if it doesn´t even work for the airfoil, then I must be doing something wrong :)

Does anybody have any idea to this? Thank you!

Best regards,

Alejandro

Re: Airfoil simulation using moving wall

I think you need to use a moving mesh,insteady of a moving airfoil. Otherwise, the airfoil will move out of your computational domain.

Re: Airfoil simulation using moving wall

I have the same problem with a simulation of the effects on the antinoise barriers caused by passing train. I use COMSOL. Can someone help me ?

Re:centrifugal pump simulation using moving wall

Hi: I hope you are doing well.Actually I need to buy a simulator for Naval traning purposes. It should have operating, maintinace skills for centerfugal pumps connected serially and parallel, includng measuring equipments, mesters, valves, water tank fixed on holder with covers. Power suppy 220 volt. If you can get me simulator or even tell me where I can buy is from it will be a great help. Best regards. Nasir Atta
