[ICEM CFD] Airfoil : How to generate a new mesh when changing the angle of attack ?

      Hi,

      I've created a C-mesh in ICEM for a 2D Airfoil (NACA0012) at AOA= 0°.

      Currently, I'm wondering what strategy to adopt to have a C-mesh by changing the angle of attack. Should I build a mesh for every AOA or can I adapt my mesh at 0°, applying a rotation of the airfoil ?

      I've seen that I could make a script that rotates the airfoil and associated blocking and then recomputes the mesh accordingly, and launched it on the Replay Control of ICEM.

      Do you have any advice or tips on how to make such a script and more specifically, how to rotate a wing profile? Do you think that with this method, the mesh will keep a good quality ? 

      Thank you very much 😊

      Best Regards,

      Maxime M.

      You will need to use ICEM reply files. Please check help manual for the same.
      Second thought is you can use SpaceClaim + Ansys Meshing. You can have tet + prism mesh. This would be much easier for parametric update.
