When you're interested in designing, building and testing unique airframes, you have to understand how airflow interacts with those shapes. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is among the large array of aerodynamic analysis tools that we use. CFD overcomes many of the limitations that are associated with wind tunnels - high cost, inconsistency, and correction factors, and allows us to analyze fluid flow problems in detail.
Using a full Navier-Stokes solver, we are 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.
