Aerion Corp. Developing New Supersonic Business Jet

CFD simulations key technique for reducing airframe’s aerodynamic drag “It’s all about increased efficiency,” explained Spencer Fugal when describing the overall benefit his organization derives from its use of Tecplot Chorus. “The software allows us to automate the process of simultaneously comparing the results of different CFD simulations. This greatly accelerates the pace at which we can identify anomalies and validate or disprove our CFD results.” Fugal, a former Boeing […]
