Aircraft CFD 101: How to construct an aircraft wing for CFD simulation
Lecture 1: How to construct an aircraft wing for CFD simulation
In this video, we will first construct the aircraft wing. We will use parameterized geometry based on Engineering Sketch Pad (ESP). The wing will be based on a set of NACA 0012 airfoil cross-sections. The basic operations in ESP, including scale, rotate and translate were demonstrated. Rule and blend commands for constructing a solid body from a set of sheet bodies were elaborated. When using the blend command, a rounded tip was also added to the wing. The edges and faces were labeled for surface meshing as well as CFD simulations.
