In the race to more environmentally friendly electrical aircrafts, Pipistrel designs a propeller specially adapted for exploiting in-flight power recuperation using CFD optimization.
Numeca’s FINE™/Design3D offers the right solution for the multi-disciplinary optimization of a FORD turbocharger compressor design.
"A good mesh is one of the fundamentals to run the CFD analysis successfully. NUMECA's AutoMesh™ significantly reduced our meshing time and improved the mesh quality resulting in better CFD simulations." OPRA Turbines International BV
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.
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.
The following case study provides an example of how HEXPRESS™/Hybrid can be used for treating unclean CAD and meshing it in less than a day for this kind of configuration.
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.
