Over an Airfoil

Alisa Mizukami

Introduction

Case introduction to air flow over an airfoil

Simulation results

A structure with curved surfaces

Airfoil: designed to give the most favorable

ratio of lift to drag in flight

Drag & Lift

Can be

modeled as

2

Want high lift, low drag airfoil

The Situation: • Air flow from

airfoil nose (left)

to tail (right)

air flows at specified

angle with respect to

6° the direction of motion

ANSYS

Fluent (v18.2)

• Computational Fluid

Dynamics (CFD) Software

1 Start! 2 Geometry 3 Mesh

Boundary Conditions

Velocity Inlet: Velocity Inlet

Wall Pressure

(Airfoil) Outlet

Defines flow velocity

Pressure Outlet:

Specifies static pressure

(for supersonic flow, pressure

value is taken from upstream

values)

Incompressible Flow

Over an Airfoil Tutorial

1. Incompressible Flow

• 1 m/s, 6° angle of attack

2. Supersonic Flow, Denser Mesh

• 450 m/s, no angle

• 450 m/s, 6° angle of attack

• 450 m/s, no angle, pressure outlet boundary condition

• 450 m/s, no angle, symmetry boundary condition

• 1000 m/s, no angle

3. Supersonic Flow, Larger Domain

• 450 m/s, no angle

• 450 m/s, 6° angle of attack

Why denser mesh? Cons

Solver takes longer

Shockwaves

Small regions in the gas where

gas properties (density,

pressure, temperature) change θ

almost instantaneously.

3 types:

• Normal 𝑐

• Oblique 𝑠𝑖𝑛𝜃 =

𝑣

• Bow

Expansion Waves

• Gradual decrease in

pressure and density

• Isentropic

• Built of infinitesimal

Changing Boundary Conditions

Symmetry

• Geometry is assumed to be

symmetrical across the boundary

• No flux across boundary

Pressure Outlet

• Specifies pressure at this boundary

Why larger domain? Cons

to hit the pressure calculate additional

values for enlarged

outlet before the area that is

velocity inlet unnecessary

Supersonic Flow 35.0 m

Mesh (Enlarged)

Larger Mesh:

• 201,100 Nodes

• 200,000 Elements

450 m/s, 6° Angle Animation

Summary

The arc of the C-Mesh domain must be a velocity inlet

The shock must hit the pressure outlet before it hits the

velocity inlet
