Introduction
The design for model of airfoil such as NACA 4412 demanded knowledge
aerodynamic properties. It was built by using GAMBIT code, chosen and specified clustering
the mesh generation with boundary conditions. To study the flow properties such as Lift
Force Coefficient and Drag Force Coefficient, three cases were taken inviscid and viscose
flow (by using K epsilon (e) RNG and SpalartAllmaras turbulent models). This study is
limited the effect of shock wave on flow properties for flow on airfoil surface by using the
curves of lift and drag force coefficients and curves of pressure coefficient on the wall while
is showed the size and location of shock waves through Mach number contours.
Various experimental and theoretical studies have been published about NACA
4412.Omar Badran et al(2003)[1]. studied mean flow and Reynolds stresses results, of a
NACA 4412 airfoil, covering the boundary layers around the airfoil and the wake region at
angle of attack, α= 15°. Twoequation turbulence models are tested on NACA 4412 airfoil at
the position of maximum lift (angle of attack= 15°). These models are the twoequation
Realizable and RNG ke models and the Reynolds Stress Model (RSM). It was found that the
developed turbulence models had captured the physics of unsteady separated flow. The
resulting surface pressure coefficients, skin friction, velocity vectors, and Reynolds stresses
are compared with flying hot wire experimental data, and the models produce very similar
results. Also excellent agreements between computational and experimental surface pressures
and skin friction were observed. Also excellent agreement between computational and
experimental surface pressures and skin friction was observed. Serhat Duran(2005)[2].
Modified blade shape by using NACA 4412. The output of the blade design program
performed for the airfoil NACA 4412 When the designed blade shape is modified, it is seen
that the power extracted from the wind is reduced about 10% and the length of modified blade
is increased about 5% for the same required power. Modification of blade geometry promised
to be a good approximation would be explained it.B. Greschner et al (2005)[3] investigated
unsteady flows around a series of NACA airfoils included NACA 4412 carried out. They
designed case studies on the connections between an airfoil shape characteristics and its
aerodynamic and aeroacoustic performance, employed the unsteady CFD flow simulations in
the near field of an airfoil. The results include identifying the optimum symmetric and
asymmetric airfoils among the airfoils and suggesting the possible optimum airfoil
characteristics. The results can be used to guide the selections of the geometric parameters
and constraints in a fully automated aerodynamic and aeroacoustic optimization. Manish K et
al (2005)[4]. Studied CL,CD on NACA 4412 and NACA 0011at Mach number 0.2 and

) and determined the effect of Gurney flap on NACA
4412 and NACA 0011 airfoils for Two dimensional steady state NavierStokes, used to
predict the flow field around the airfoils. Gurney flap sizes selected for the study range from
0.5% to 4% of the airfoil chord. They Computed results have been compared with available
experimental and computational data. There was good correlation observed between
computed and experimental data. Addition of Gurney flap increased the lift coefficient
significantly with very little drag penalty if proper Gurney flap height was selected.

The RNG Kε Model
Yakhot, et al. [6] have proposed a variant of the kεModel to improve performance
characteristics compared to the standard model. The new model is based on the
RenormalizationGroupTheory [7], and is referred to as “RNG”kεModel. The transport
equations of the RNG are very similar to the standard (kε) model, but employ an additional
source/sink term in the (ε) equation and the values of the coefficients differ from those in the
standard (kε) model. The turbulent kinetic energy, k, and its rate of dissipation, ε epsilon, are
obtained from the following transport equations::

SpalartAllmaras Model
The Spalart & Allmaras model belongs to the one equation family of eddy viscosity models.
This family is based on the assumption that Reynolds stresstensor −ρ ⋅

computed from the Reynolds Stresses:

Actually the computation uses an intermediate transport variable with the damping function
f
v1
(χ) relating to turbulent viscosity by νt = f
v1
(χ) to solve the following transport equation
…………….…………..(8)
The intermediate variable is in general identical to the turbulent kinematic viscosity νt
except in the nearwall region [9].
Gν and Yν are the production and destruction terms of turbulent viscosity. Both are strong in
the nearwall region due to wall blocking and viscous damping. Besides denotes the
turbulent Prandtl number, Cb2 a calibration constant and ν is the molecular kinematic
viscosity.
Boundary conditions specify the flow and properties variables on the boundaries of the
physical model. The boundary conditions in GAMBIT are classified, flow inlet and exit
boundaries: pressure far field, pressure outlet, Wall, the internal face boundary conditions are
defined on cell faces, which means that they do not have a finite thickness and they provide a
means of introducing a step change in flow properties[10].
In solid wall, there are two types of flow on the wall, depending on viscous or inviscid
flow, wherein viscous wall boundary condition, noslip condition, enforced at walls,
tangential fluid velocity equal to wall velocity. Normal velocity component = 0, shear stress
can also be specified [10].
In inviscid wall boundary condition imposes flow tangency at the zone boundary (wall
surface) while maintaining the same total velocity as the point adjacent to the boundary [10].
The far field boundary conditions are more difficult to specify in a way that facilitates
computation. It is necessary to differentiate between inflow and outflow boundary conditions,
which can determine pressure far field, pressure outlet boundary condition.
Pressure outlet boundary conditions are used to define the static pressure at flow outlet. The
use of a pressure outlet boundary condition instead of an outflow condition often results in a
better rate of convergence when backflow occurs during iteration .

Pressure far field boundary conditions are used to model a free stream compressible or
incompressible flow at infinity, with free stream Mach number and static conditions specified.
For grid generation FLUENT used grids comprising of triangular. the major motivation for
using unstructured grids employing triangular cells, the range of length scales of the flow is
large, a triangular mesh can often be created with far fewer cells than the equivalent mesh
consisting of quadrilateral cells. This is because a triangular mesh allows cells to be clustered
in selected regions of the flow domain, whereas structured quadrilateral meshes will generally
force cells to be placed in regions where they are not needed, the reason behind case in the
current study unstructured triangular meshes as shown fig (1) [4].
At convergence, all discrete conservation equations (momentum, energy, etc.) obey in all cells
to a specify tolerance. Solution no longer changes with more iteration, solution to equation on
overall mass, momentum, energy, and scalar balances are obtained. Monitoring convergence
with residuals, generally shows, a decrease in residuals by 3 orders of magnitude indicating at
least qualitative convergence, major flow features established, scaled species residual may
need to decrease to 104 to achieve species balance, monitoring quantitative convergence and
monitoring other variables for changes, ensure that conservation satisfies the convergence [4].
Results and Discussion
The flow computations required about 800 iterations to converge. At the end of every
computational run, flow residuals are reduced by more than three orders of magnitude. An
example of residual history is shown in Fig 2.

The shock wave grew moving towards tail as well as the interaction with the boundary layer

behavior of flow properties are similar to previous cases at Mach number 0.8 .
In Figures (12, 13 and 14) the pressure distribution along airfoil surface is presented by

which is one of the main subjects of the investigation. The curves of all three models fit and
give a good indication to the location of the shock wave. The high gradient in pressure
coefficient (X/C ≈ 15, 17.5 and 50) indicates the back boundary of the shock region. The
effect of the viscosity was gradually increased which cause the deference between the CD and
CL. when increase the value of Mach number above 0.7 the values of CL and CD are jump
because of the shock wave was created on the middle surface of airfoil as shown in the figures
(15, 16).
Conclusion
As the aim of study the effect of shock wave on airfoil surface is to know the value of Mach
number, which start to create shock wave and effect boundary layer on the shock. The
calculations show good agreement in values of Mach number 0.729 in three cases on RAE

with AlDulaimy [11], but it deferent in the location of shock
wave because the shape of airfoil for this reason different the results from angle of attack 0.0

.
The curves of pressure coefficient give exact location for shock wave. The curves of CL, CD
and CP give effect of shock wave on CL, CD and CP on surface of airfoil. The effect of
viscosity is clearance on CL, CD and values of Mach numbers contours but is disappear in
pressure coefficient .
