Flow around wings

The following examples concern flow around wings with different upstream configurations.

In proximity to the wing, the flow separates and produces complex flow patterns, oscillating in space and time. In `real life' applications, the corresponding lift and particularly the drag forces acting on the wing are of major interest, and a difficult numerical job to do! The complexity of the problem depends on the:

  • inflow speed and angle of attack
  • viscosity
  • shape of the wing

A systematic variation of these different configurations is part of the following flow situations.
