Application Boom Supersonic is redefining what it means to fly by building Overture, history’s fastest commercial airliner. Overture will travel at a speed of Mach 2.2 and a cruising altitude of up to 60,000 feet.

Due to the complexity of designing for supersonic speeds, Boom Supersonic engineers need to be able to test multiple conditions and try out many different design ideas. They also work with a very short time-to-concept, which means they need a solution that is fast to set up and even faster to get results.

In a pilot program with NUMECA, Boom managed to achieve results up to 14 times faster than with their previous design environment, according to Tim Conners, Lead Propulsion Engineer at Boom Supersonic. NUMECA solutions have not only advanced the development of the XB-1 subscale demonstrator by providing a dramatically streamlined and highly automated workflow, but the NUMECA partnership has given Boom the opportunity for significant savings in computational resources and a reduction in design cycle time.
