In this tutorial, we will simulate a NACA 4314 Airfoil in a steady 10m/s flow of water. NACA airfoils were studied in the 1920’s and 1930’s by the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA, the predecessor to NASA), and they have been used in a wide variety of applications. The domain and boundary conditions we will be using are shown in the diagram below:
In this video we will take a look on midsurface generation and meshing. This is an introduction video and covers the basics on how to create and mesh a midsurface. If requested, I can do a follow up video on the same matter, exploring the details of the implemented midsurface capabilities of HyperWorks2020.
