The purpose of this work is to investigate the flow around a fixed NACA0012 airfoil profile at different angles of attack using wall-resolved LES. The profile has a chord length of c=0.1 m and is exposed to a flow at a Reynolds number of Re=100,000. The background is that in the next step the coupled problem should be considered, dealing with the flutter problem. The software ANSYS ICEM CFD is utilized in order to generate the meshes, which are then applied for the simulation with the in-house…
