From geometry to CFD grids-An automated approach for conceptual design
2011 (English)In: Progress in Aerospace Sciences, ISSN 0376-0421, E-ISSN 1873-1724, Vol. 47, no 8, 589-596 p.Article, review/survey (Refereed) Published
The CEASIOM software developed in the EU-funded collaborative research project SimSAC generates stability and control data for preliminary aircraft design using different methods of varying fidelity. In order to obtain the aerodynamic derivatives by CFD, the aircraft geometry must be defined, computational meshes generated, and numerical parameters set for the flow solvers. An approach to automation of the process is discussed, involving geometry generation and mesh generation for inviscid as well as RANS flow models.
