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 […]

CFD Simulation Analysis Times Reduced

Case Study: Tecplot Chorus integrates with KARALIT CFD to save time with mesh-free CFD simulations and analyses The Immersed Boundary (IB) methodology, a mesh-free technique for running CFD simulations, has been around since the 1970s. Instead of running Navier-Stokes equations on grids that conform to the shape of an object, as is done with meshing, the IB technique immerses a CAD model of the object into a Cartesian grid and […]

Bringing More Excitement to Auto Racing with Mushroom-Busting Designs

Tecplot Chorus Helps Swift Engineering Inc. Change Mushroom-shaped Wakes on Formula Race Cars to Make Passing Easier and Auto Racing More Exciting The race does not always go to the swift, especially when it’s Formula auto racing, where the wake of a race car can be turbulent enough to prevent others from passing it, no matter how fast they’re going. “That can make it pretty boring to watch, as well,” […]

Supersonic Unmanned Aerial Vehicles Close To Becoming Reality

Researchers at University of Colorado developing supersonic UAV that’s fast, economical, and fuel-efficient It’s small. It’s fuel-efficient. It’s reasonably priced. And it’s fast. Supersonic fast. It is an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) that will fly at speeds approaching Mach 1.4 and faster than anything in the sub-50 kg vehicle category today, using an engine two to four times more efficient than any other in its class. Under development by researchers […]
