In the race to more environmentally friendly electrical aircrafts, Pipistrel designs a propeller specially adapted for exploiting in-flight power recuperation using CFD optimization.
Computational Fluids Dynamics (CFD) is the core of the design approach of this vessel. With NUMECA’s software FINE™/Marine, A2V relied entirely on simulation during the design of the fully instrumented 10.5m prototype.
OPRA Turbines manufactures generator sets using the OP16 series of gas turbines. This customer case describes the development of a marine version of its OP16 gen-set for use onboard ships.
DAMEN and NUMECA are developing a CFD methodology to demonstrate a vessel has sufficient transversal stability to resist over-rolling in severe side winds.
The importance of accurately calculating the way an aircraft reacts to gusts and turbulences early on in the design process.
