CFD Helps Cure Separation Anxiety
Posted Tue June 14, 2005 @10:38AM

Application Machine Design has posted an article describing Sverdrup's use of CFD to predict aircraft store separation -- something once designed solely through expensive and dangerous flight testing.

New weapons systems often took years to certify because tests were time consuming, expensive and occasionally led to the loss of aircraft when events didn't go as expected. Dynamically unstable objects such as fuel tanks and some modern, agile munitions that happen to experience a control failure are especially challenging.

The result: CFD did a good job of modeling separation at a speed of Mach 1.2 at an altitude of 38,000 ft.
