News Researchers Nobuyuki Umetani and Bernd Bickel have published their work on a data-driven technique to instantly predict how fluid flows around various three-dimensional objects.

CFD simulation of new designs, even in the case of minor changes, is computationally expensive since it requires solving the Navier-Stokes equation for many time steps. To accelerate the process, Umetani and Bickel propose a machine learning framework which predicts aerodynamic forces and velocity and pressure fields given a 3D shape input.

Application A new Advanced Design Technology blog article discusses how an axial fan was designed by the 3D inverse design method.

The designed blade shape was put to CFD (computational fluid dynamics) for performance prediction and the DOE (design of experiments) method was used to analyze the effects of the designing parameters on the functionality of the fan.
