choux is on a distinguished road
Hi,Foamers. I am a newer to OpenFOAM. I am running a NACA0012 airfoil case with simpleFoam and the turbulence model is SA, but I am not aware of how to set the case with non-dimensional quantities. For example, mach 0.1, AoA 0, Reynolds Number 6e6.

Could somebody provide me some advice in setting the case, including "0", "system" and "constant" ?
