In the race to more environmentally friendly electrical aircrafts, Pipistrel designs a propeller specially adapted for exploiting in-flight power recuperation using CFD optimization.
Detailed customer case description of the full engine simulation for the re-design of a KJ66 micro gas turbine.
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
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.
As a key player in the aerospace market, at GKN Aerospace we need to be very demanding regarding the capabilities of the tools we use. In the fast-paced environment that is the CFD world, our engineers need a robust and quick mesh generator, providing an accurate capturing of our complex turbomachinery geometries.
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.
