Application By Scott Burch
Garry Rogers Motorsport

The year 2015 marks the 4th year that the Garry Rogers Motorsport (GRM) team has enjoyed the advantages of using the Pointwise computational fluid dynamics (CFD) dedicated meshing software to produce detailed, high fidelity meshes for the design and improvement of our Volvo Polestar S60 V8 supercars.

The 2014 results speak for themselves with five race wins, ten pole positions (equaling the highest for the year) and our driver Scott McLaughlin?s qualifying average of 3.8, the highest of any driver in the series.

Airframe, wing and rotor icing is a critical problem in aerodynamics. Ice changes the geometric shape of surfaces it accretes on, which changes its aerodynamic characteristics in unpredictable and possibly catastrophic ways. The Federal Aviation Administration estimates airframe ice can decrease lift by more than 30 percent and increase drag by more than 80 percent. Developing an increased understanding of ice accretion on aircraft is needed to make flying safer.

Aeronautics & Astronautics Department
Stanford University

SU2 is an open-source collection of C++ and Python-based software for multi-physics simulation and design, and it is particularly well suited for computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and aerodynamic shape design. It is now under active development both by researchers at Stanford University and by individuals and groups at institutions all around the world.
