NACA0012 Airfoil (Compressible Flow), Paper Numerical Validation, ANSYS Fluent CFD Simulation training

In this project, We simulated the compressible flow around the NACA0012 airfoil by Ansys Fluent Software. Then we compared the results with the results extracted from an article called this “Numerical Simulation OF VISCOUS TRANSONIC AIRFOIL FLOWS”.

Geometry & Mesh

The geometry is designed by the design modeler Software.

NACA0012 Airfoil CFD Simulation

To simulate the present model, several assumptions are considered, which are:

  • The solver is density-based due to compressibility.
  • Simulation has been done as Steady State
  • We ignored the gravity effect.

The following is a summary of the steps for defining the problem and its solution:
