Innovation & Quality

The 53rd edition of the International Paris Air Show in Le Bourget is coming up!

The 53rd Show will take place at the Le Bourget Parc des Expositions from 17 to 23 June 2019, and once again will bring together all the players in this global industry around the latest technological innovations.

Pipistrel reduces by 6% the energy consumption of an electrical aircraft by optimizing its propeller with FINE™/Turbo

In the race to more environmentally friendly electrical aircrafts, Pipistrel designs a propeller specially adapted for exploiting in-flight power recuperation using CFD optimization.

Academic series: Implementation of a Fluid-Structure Interaction Solver for a Spinnaker Sail

Anna Ramolini from Delft University used NUMECA software to study an FSI model on a Spinnaker sail.

 

Ultra-fast and fuel efficient aerodynamic boat design by A2V with FINE™/Marine

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.

Professor Charles Hirsch gave the annual ‘Introduction to CFD’ course at the von Karman Institute last week

This course included the basics of CFD from an industrial aspect. Research master students of von Karman institute benefited from this very special course where Professor Hirsch showed exclusive academic and industrial CFD application examples as well as giving the general feeling of approach to industrial CFD problems.
