ANSYS Webinar: Addressing the Challenges of the Design of Hypersonic Vehicles with Simulations - 7 November 2018

Webinar Info: 

The recent surge in interest in hypersonic technology has highlighted the need to accurately and efficiently simulate these complex flow-fields using simulation tools. Computer simulations for the design and analysis of hypersonic vehicles are critical as it is often impossible to reproduce the high-Mach number, high-enthalpy conditions experienced at the high speeds of these vehicles in a wind tunnel.

Simulating the hypersonic flow regime with CFD tools presents several challenges, ranging from the accurate modeling of complex physical phenomena, such as compressibility effects, shock-boundary layer interaction, high temperatures, dissociation and ionization of air, ablation of solid surfaces and, ultimately, magnetohydrodynamics effects, to the stabilization of the numerical algorithms used to solve the governing equations.

In this webinar we will show how ANSYS tools are used to simulate high speed flows and to design hypersonic vehicles, by highlighting the capabilities of the CFD and multiphysics tools and by showing select case studies.

  • Since the introduction of ANSYS, more students are using first principles and FEA to validate their designs. This year, more than 60% of the projects were using FEA as a standard approach for numerical calculation. This number shows the huge impact ANSYS, had on University of Pretoria. FEA is not anymore a specialised tool for few users but a standard engineering tool easily integrated in the design process.

  • At Aerospace, we have successfully used the ANSYS suite of tools to design high-performance gas turbine engines. Throughout this program, Qfinsoft provided valuable support and assistance to accelerate the development of our models. Their accessibility, short-turn around times and willingness to go beyond what is expected make them an effective partner on our projects.
