Default bad accuracy CD in Euler simulations

We are running tests of mesh generators on a wing-body for student use.

When given a mesh from the open software DWFsumo from larosterna.com
the SU2 blackbird results of alpha-sweep 0-10, M 0.3 compressible Euler
are good.

A similar mesh from gmsh gives good CL but very bad CD, some < 0.
Flow visualization with paraview shows nothing untoward to the
naked eye.

The same gmsh msh when run with the Swedish national CFD program
M-Edge (now owned by Saab) on license to Swedish universities gives
again "good" results. M-Edge is a time-stepping
compressible solver sharing some basics with SU2.

I tried to attach config file but could not figure how.
Hints would be much appreciated. Obviously SU2 is more
mesh-sensitive than M-Edge.

Can you say a bit more about the difference in the meshes? It would help to have 2 cases available, exactly the same configuration, except different meshes, one with good performance, the other with bad performance. Maybe you can create a small github repository for it and give a link?

Hi @bigfootedrockmidget, here you can find the repository https://github.com/GBenedett/Negative_CD_SU2

Thanks for your help

Hi,
Can you also share some figures from the validation study?


Edit: would be nice to know what the actual values should be and how the other codes compare.

Hi,
I can reproduce the negative Cd. It is also visible when integrating the pressure field in paraview. Do you also have the sumo mesh that gives good results?
I did notice that the mesh quality around the leading and trailing edge is very coarse, actually the entire mesh is very coarse. Does the problem disappear when you refine the mesh?

Thanks for your quick reply, I also tried to get the cd from paraview and I get the same result as well. As for the sumo mesh, you can find it in the github repository, it is called "labARstraight_sumo.zip". As for the validation cases, I uploaded them to the same repository instead, they are called "m0.3a3_gmsh.zip" and "m0.3a3_sumo.zip". The link is still the same https://github.com/GBenedett/Negative_CD_SU2


Yes, the mesh quality is not very good, but we did it on purpose, of course we also tried with fine mesh, but the results are the same.


Thank you very much.
