Aerodynamics is the study of the moving air around or inside solid bodies, or in an other perspective, the study of a moving body in the air. Most of the aerodynamic quantities can be well analyzed by an aerodynamics simulation using a cutting edge CFD solver.

Most important quantities I can provide my customers with:

  • aerodynamic drag simulation and calculation
  • lift calculation
  • moment and center of pressure
  • turbulence, separation and vortices
  • pressure loss calculation
  • and many more: service request

Internal Flow Aerodynamics Simulation

If your problem is an “internal flow” case, whereas the fluid is confined by walls in every direction, most important aerodynamic quantities involves pressure loss, friction, local velocity and turbulence. These quantities can be very well simulated and predicted for your product, way before it gets manufactured. This means cost and time savings for you.

Examples for internal flow aerodynamics applications:

Outcomes from an internal flow simulation:

  • reduced pressure loss
  • improved mass flow / volume flow rate
  • lower turbulence for lower losses
  • or improved turbulence and mixing for special purposes
  • reduced noise levels

External flow aerodynamics simulation

The fluid dynamics problem is called external, when the air has an impact on the outer surface of a body. This results in aerodynamic forces, which is the main aim of running an aerodynamics simulation. A CFD software can accurately predict these forces (usually called lift and drag), calculate drag coefficient and lift coefficient and many more.
