NUMECA contributes to JAXA APC-III workshop using FINE™/Open for aerodynamic prediction

Aerodynamic Prediction Challenge (APC) is a series of workshops organised by the JAXA with the aim of tracking the progress of CFD tools with respect to challenges faced in aeronautical applications.

NUMFLO, global leader in numerical simulation, seducing Hollywood

NUMFLO has collaborated with FLYING-CAM, a Belgian company, leader in designing and manufacturing unmanned airborne solutions, that won 2 Scientific and Engineering Awards at the famous Oscars® with their innovative technology.

The AeroGust Project: Aeroelastic Gust Modelling

A key element in the design of an aircraft is to make sure it can cope with the stresses arising from the impact of strong winds on the plane’s structure. Calculating the way the aircraft reacts to gusts and turbulences is essential knowledge before a plane can be built.

Generic Gas Turbine Combustor

This case study on combustion and radiative heat transfer in a generic gas turbine (GGT) combustor of TU Darmstadt illustrates the multi-physics modeling capabilities in FINE™/Open

Space Launch Innovation at Masten Space Systems with NUMECA Software

NUMECA-USA has worked closely with Masten Aerodynamics Lead, Allan Grosvenor, and his team to develop an HPC-driven workflow that enables concept development, evolution, and optimization, of vehicle configuration that takes into consideration aerodynamic performance, control, loads and aerothermal heating, with simultaneous trajectory optimization.

Integrated "CFD - Acoustic" Computational Approach to the simulation of aircraft fan noise

An innovative computational approach, integrating mesh generation, CFD simultaneous analysis of noise source and propagation, with acoustic radiation, is presented and applied to the simulation of the Advanced Noise Control Fan (ANCF) developed by NASA Glenn Research Center.

Accurate impeller-volute interaction in Turbochargers

Turbochargers are currently ubiquitous in automobiles. It is nearly impossible to find a new Diesel vehicle without turbocharging and direct injection. Gasoline cars have been also following suit for the past few years. Regulations are pushing for lower emissions and the way to achieve this has been downsizing and using turbocharging to offset the lower power density of a smaller motor.
