Case Study: Flow over an Airfoil in Ansys Discovery

This case study deals with simulating the flow of air over an airfoil using Ansys Discovery. The aim of it is to understand how lift and drag forces act on the airfoil and to visualize them using the software. It illustrates the influence of the angle of attack of an airfoil on the lift and drag forces.
