C-Grid mesh for Eppler 423
I have the capabilities of using Star CCM+ and have done the airfoil tutorial. For a design I'm working on I'd like to perform a similar analysis on an Eppler 423 airfoil. I know that a structured c grid mesh is the best for having an accurate solution for an airfoil. I have read on hear and have experienced trouble generating a descent mesh in Star. Would it be possible for someone to supply me with a structured c grid mesh of an Eppler 423 airfoil? Would be greatly appreciated.

I'd be tempted to use the new advancing layer mesher in v. 7.02. This allows the growth of very thick boundary layers from immersed bodies - allowing you to control the cell sizes close to your airfoil much like a structured C-Grid might - but with the convenience of having an unstructured mesh.
