Guidance in Gambit 2.4 -- How change airfoil chords in Wells turbine model?

  1. Oct 22, 2014 #1
    hi my dear friends,

    Wells turbine is the subject of the my Thesis:

    i make below model in gambit 2.4 ,But now I want to make the upper airfoil cord bigger than the bottom one.

    below model is constant,attention to third pictures( Attend dash line)

    Now Here,
    I do not think the sweep tool is efficient(attention to below picture ).

    I think that have the coordinates of the vertexes from the two airfoils(for blade),I can easily Create New model.

    Do not know of a site that would provide the coordinates airfoils with different chord?

    The following sites provides coordinates but I think cords are identical:



    Another way you know, Guide me.

    thanks for your help.
