How can I draw a 3dimensional NACA 0015 .?
What should i calculate ?
i believe NACA0015 means 0 camber at the leading point of the airfoil and having 15% thickness of the chord line...... so i guess u only need the chord length..
Airfoils is symetric. NACA codes give a cross section of the airfoil which is 2-D it does not say anything about the airfoil in the lateral direction
it is a little bit complicated , i dont know how to do that ,However i have to draw it or at least any other airfoils as a 3d .
Since i am workin on a darrius 3d wind turbine , modeling and simulatin using CFD , fluent and gambit
The NACA definitions are cross sections like was already mentioned. They have nothing to do with a 3rd dimension. That is up to the designer and usually involves blending between different airfoils as you travel from the root to the tip.
So , thre is no way to draw it as a 3 dimensional , the only way is to get its dimensions in 2d , then it is up to me to decide the blend line to make it as 3d, is that right ?
Anyway , thanks all fr your reply
How can I get the vertices of the NACA0015 profile for designing it in Gambit? Can u tell me the detailed way of doing so??
