2D simulation of Aerofoil in Ground Effect

Hey,

 

Just wondering if within flow simulation, the downforce generated by an aerofoil, in ground effect, can be calculated using 2D simulation rather than 3D?

 

i have my airfoil modelled, then a ground plate that i am setting as a boundary condition, a moving wall.

 

I am using surface goals to calculate the downforce generated by the aerofoil.

 

Thanks,
