I am currently working on axisymmetric bodies like fuselages/droplets etc. For this, I am interested in the point of flow separation (if there is) and velocity components at a certain point in space.
I know that XFoil is capable of doing this in a short fraction of time/effort compared to CFD for 2D sections.
What is the validity of taking this approach towards axisymmetric bodies? With this I mean: using the cross section of the axisymmetric body and simulating this 2D cross section in XFoil, or any other 2D airfoil simulation programme.
Or: can I change the software in some way such that it can represent the physics better?
