“We can put through a lot more crazy ideas at the CFD level at very low risk. The ability to understand and design for effects like side force and yaw torque before we prototype is a major advantage in both wheel performance and time to market. If we used to take 20 prototypes into the tunnel, we might find four worth pursuing. Now we take in 30, and find that 15 of them are worth pursuing."

Optimizing the Aerodynamics Workflow with FieldView

 

Wing Flutter

 

 

Making things move fast and smoothly is the essence of aerodynamics. Making the engineering process run fast and smoothly in aircraft aerodynamics is essential to meeting cost and schedule goals, exceeding performance targets, and creating a sustainable competitive advantage. Complex, highly unsteady flows, very large datasets, and widely varying operating conditions pose many workflow challenges. New designs must achieve significant performance gains in areas like fuel efficiency and cruising range, making optimization important. Data comparison among multiple simulations is extensive, and often requires access to much earlier data.

Intelligent Light addresses Aerodynamics Workflow with Fieldview our advanced CFD post processor and our Applied Research Group: leading CFD practitioners with deep Aerospace domain experience.

Boosting Productivity in Aeroengine Design

 

LM6000 combustor

 

 

Highly unsteady and complex, aeroengines pose significant design, airframe integration, and large data management challenges. You need strategic, robust CFD simulation and visualization tools to thoroughly understand the performance of your engine design. Even extensive physical testing cannot reveal, nor isolate, hidden physics or phenomena that occur too quickly or in non-testable conditions.

Success requires an efficient, productive CFD workflow that helps you quickly visualize and interrogate even your largest models, compare results, and identify numbers of merit and areas of interest for further exploration in:

  • Thrust and efficiency (performance, range, fuel efficiency)
  • Combustion stability, predictability of burn
  • Shock propagation
  • Aeroacoustics / noise reduction
  • Emissions

Short time scales and the need to optimize engine performance over a wide range of operating conditions add to your development challenge. FieldView responds with the industry’s fastest post-processing and interpretation capabilities, most advanced visualization, and powerfully productive data management and automation tools. Maximize use of your HPC resources with parallel or batch processing workflow options.

FieldView works with virtually any in-house or commercial solver, delivering:
