The R2Wall project aims at performing high resolution Large-Eddy Simulations (LES) of the NACA 4412 airfoil at maximum lift angle and at a Reynolds number of 1.6 millions. The aim is to provide open-access detailed and high resolution reference data set for the development of lower fidelity CFD methodologies, and in particular (non-equilibrium) wall models for LES. This work inscribes itself in the development roadmap of the solver Argo for LES of wind turbines and turbomachinery.
