What will you do in this project?

In this project, you will work on a NACA 2412 Airfoil and running cases for different angle of attacks (AOA). You will do the following in this project,

  • Creating a geometry and the virtual wind tunnel
  • Calculate the 1st cell height near the wall using Y+ calculator
  • Setup and run the cases using Converge CFD software
  • Line plotting and visualizing the results in PARAVIEW.
  • Analyzing drag and lift force acting an an Airfoil at different AOA

  • Understanding the concept of Y+ and Turbulence modeling.
  • Learning different techniques to optimize the cell count.
  • Running the simulation on multiple cores in command line window (CYGWIN).
  • Creating meaningful plots in MS - EXCEL.

Flow over an Airfoil NACA 2412

In this project, you will be creating a geometry either in Converge Studio or any of the CAD package and setting up the case in Converge Studio by providing appropriate boundary conditions. Also, you will be learning the theory behind how to create a virtual wind tunnel and will be creating it. Through this project, you will be getting a very good insight on the concepts of Turbulence modelling, Y+, calculating 1st cell height near the wall and also understand how to make use of Y+ calculator to calculate base grid size. You will get exposed to very strong features of fixed embedding, volume refinement, boundary layer generation which are really important as it gives user, a very good control on the cell count and cell count can easily be optimized using these features. You will also be making few pen and paper calculation in order to calculate drag co-efficient and lift co-efficient for different angle of attacks. Also, you will be exporting the data into MS Excel to create meaningful plots.

  • Understanding steady state & transient state solvers
  • Understanding the importance of boundary layer separation and it's effects.
  • Looking to capture for the wake region and stagnation zones
  • Looking for the stalling effect.
