External Aerodynamics Using OpenFOAM
Do you trust your wind tunnel?

Today, aircraft, vehicles, missiles, or projectiles in trans-sonic and supersonic flows present CFD analysis issues because of their large requirements for processing. Mechanical and performance engineers rely on extended cycles of analysis and long wait times for results. This limits analysis to single phase and single body characteristics, and delays multi-phase, multi-body analysis until a physical wind tunnel prototype is available, which is well down the road to a set design.

Join us to learn why many global manufacturing companies are switching from commercial codes to OpenFOAM for external aerodynamics studies. In addition, how can engineers:
  • Cut costs by +70% over legacy, workstation-based CFD
  • Flexibly scale systems using distributed cloud based solving for complex analyses
  • Achieve multi-phase, multi-body analysis before committing to a physical wind tunnel prototype
  • Add repeatable analysis workflow and collaboration to CFD

Our guest speaker is Dr. Hrvoje Jasak, director at Wikki, Ltd. and former developer of ANSYS Fluent and CD-Adapco STAR-CD. Dr. Jasak brings a wealth of knowledge of CFD solver technology and is an OpenFOAM developer.

We have two convenient sessions on October 3rd:
