Research

All NUMECA software solutions are available for classroom courses as well as student projects, from our comprehensive turbomachinery environment to marine to multiphysics, including our complete meshing range. NUMECA software allows instructors to easily incorporate illustrations and exercises into CFD and Fluid Mechanics courses

In the development of state-of-the-art technologies, NUMECA works in partnership on several R&D projects with many universities worldwide.

Here are some examples: 

 

 

Soot model developed at TU Delft     

FINE™/Open with OpenLabs was used to develop a soot model by adding a transport equation for the sootmass fraction with added nucleation and oxidation source term based on Khan and Greeves + Magnussen’s oxidation model. It was applied to simulate Kent and Honnery’s turbulent ethylene flame (1987).  

 

Stevens Institute used FINE™/Marine to study a free-surface hydrodynamic model for simulating planing hull hydrodynamics. In addition, FINE™/Marine is an example of NUMECA’s close collaboration with universities, as its solver originated as a research tool at Ecole Centrale de Nantes and is still developed there.

 

 

 

 

The Technische Universität MünchenInstitute for Flight Propulsion is using FINE™/Turbo in research projects.  For example, the software has been used to study interaction between the flow and different casing treatments for a high pressure compressor.

Universidad Publica de Navarra used FINE™/Open with Openlabs successfully for predicting wind flow to complex terrain surfaces.
