Airfoil Wing Analysis in Algor?

I was wondering if anyone knows the best way to apply a load or wind or temperature or something to generate results for analysis on a airfoil.


Any help on how to work with this software would be beneficial!


Thank you.

For fluid wind load, 

- Make fluid domain (fluid part) and set up fluid analysis as external flow (make airfoil inside box and set appropriate BCs).

- Run fluid analysis to get fluid reaction force contributed from pressure and stear stress on surface(s) 

- (In structure analysis) read fluid reaction force for stress analysis


For temperature loads, do thermal or coupled fluid/thermal analysis first to get temperature distribution and apply as loads in structure analysis.
