NUMECA offers grid generation and CFD tools designed to tackle the most complex systems in the aerospace industry. Our integrated CFD software packages provide analysis tools and solutions for:
• Aerodynamic performance including potential, blade/wake, wake interactions, wind speed and turbulence
• Noise performance including vibration and flow generated noise
• Optimization of components e.g. blades, generators, nacelles, rotors
• Fluid-structure interactions
• Heating, Ventilating, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) analysis
NUMECA has provided CFD solutions for a wide range of aerospace flow analyses from passenger aircrafts to missiles configurations.
NUMECA's full-hex meshing capabilities and accelerated convergence with the new CPU Booster make fast, accurate flow predictions of the aerodynamics of a passenger aircraft a reality.
The accompanying graphs demonstrate NUMECA's success in reproducing experimental results and order-of-magnitude convergence speed-up. The graphs here show comparison of lift vs. angle of attack between FINE™/Turbo computations and experiments and the convergence acceleration possible with the CPU Booster.
