Application Cases

NUMECA contributes to JAXA APC-III workshop using FINE™/Open for aerodynamic prediction

Aerodynamic Prediction Challenge (APC) is a series of workshops organised by the JAXA with the aim of tracking the progress of CFD tools with respect to challenges faced in aeronautical applications.

The AeroGust Project: Aeroelastic Gust Modelling

A key element in the design of an aircraft is to make sure it can cope with the stresses arising from the impact of strong winds on the plane’s structure. Calculating the way the aircraft reacts to gusts and turbulences is essential knowledge before a plane can be built.

Testimony - GKN Aerospace

As a key player in the aerospace market, at GKN Aerospace we need to be very demanding regarding the capabilities of the tools we use. In the fast-paced environment that is the CFD world, our engineers need a robust and quick mesh generator, providing an accurate capturing of our complex turbomachinery geometries. 

Space Launch Innovation at Masten Space Systems with NUMECA Software

NUMECA-USA has worked closely with Masten Aerodynamics Lead, Allan Grosvenor, and his team to develop an HPC-driven workflow that enables concept development, evolution, and optimization, of vehicle configuration that takes into consideration aerodynamic performance, control, loads and aerothermal heating, with simultaneous trajectory optimization.

Numerical simulation of acoustic liners in nacelle turbofans towards aircraft noice reduction

An innovative technique is presented to reduce noise from turbofan aircraft engines by incorporating the acoustic treatment with liners in engine ducts.

Integrated "CFD - Acoustic" Computational Approach to the simulation of aircraft fan noise

An innovative computational approach, integrating mesh generation, CFD simultaneous analysis of noise source and propagation, with acoustic radiation, is presented and applied to the simulation of the Advanced Noise Control Fan (ANCF) developed by NASA Glenn Research Center.
