Predictions in the areas of stability and control, performance, and handling qualities are among the areas in which Scaled excels.

Aerodynamic Analysis And Design

FULL SERVICE ANALYSIS AND DESIGN: Scaled Composites, LLC has a strong background in complete aircraft design and analysis. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is among the large array of aerodynamic analysis tools that are used at Scaled. CFD overcomes many of the limitations that are associated with wind tunnels - high cost, inconsistency, and correction factors. CFD allows us to analyze fluid flow problems in detail, at an earlier stage in the design cycle, for less money with lower risk.

DETAILED CFD: Using a full Navier-Stokes solver, Scaled is able to perform detailed analysis in a diverse range of applications. All types of external flows, from subsonic to transonic to supersonic, can be evaluated with confidence. Laminar, turbulent, and separated regions of flow can be accurately resolved. In addition to external flows, Scaled is able to analyze many other types of problems. These include heat exchangers, internal and nozzle flows, combustion and heat transfer issues.

ADDITIONAL CAPABILITIES: In addition to CFD, Scaled uses an extensive suite of other design tools. Predictions in the areas of stability and control, performance, and handling qualities are among the areas in which Scaled excels. Scaled has a long history of design work on extremely unique and difficult airplanes. Other capabilities include: single and multiple element airfoil analysis and design, static and dynamic aeroelastic analysis, vortex lattice stability analysis, and flutter analysis.

Scaled's aerodynamic analysis and design capability, when combined with our proof-of-concept building experience, provides our customers with the most cost-effective and accurate development data available.
