Dear SolidWorks Community, this one is a real brain-teaser that I can't get my head around, so helps are really appreciated ^^. Thanks alot in advance.

I have an airfoil profile on which I would like to run ( and have been running) flow simulation to determine drag and lift coefficient. But know the tutor of this project is asking us to run simulation on different attack angles and plot the drag/lift curve.

Anyone knows how to do this automatically on SolidWorks?

Thanks very much. have a nice holiday!

Hi

you should make an assembly of the foil and create one angle mate which will change the assembly setup.

Then make a "what if analysis", like here

Design scenarios for fluid flow in SolidWorks Flow Simulation

save the results for your equation goal (drag force) and plot a graph (preferably in Excel).

Hope this helps!
