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 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.
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.
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
For the prediction of the resistance curve of a planing hull and validation against model tests, Marintek used FINE™/Marine and HEXPRESS™ in this user case. Read all about it here.
Meshing is always a compromise between computational efficiency and the needed accuracy. We need the smallest possible mesh to capture the effects that we consider as the most important in our simulations.
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.
“We massively invested in NUMECA solutions more than 2 years ago, and are very satisfied with the level of precision they provide us.“ Dr.Takiguchi, Chief Engineer at Honda Automobile R&D Center.
Numerically simulated cavitating performance and open water performance of an SMP'15 propeller
This paper describes trends in CFD (computational fluid dynamics) techniques for simulation-based design and simulation-based operation.
