Compressible Flow Over an Airfoil
Created using ANSYS 18.1
A wing with a NACA 0012 airfoil section has a chord of 1 meter, a span of 1 meter, and a thickness of 0.01 meter. The wing is made of Aluminum 6061-T6. If air moves at 987.84 km/hour around the airfoil, find the velocity vectors of compressible flow over the airfoil.
