Perfect Flight At Last

News New flow simulation software developed at the Army High-Performance Computing Research Center (AHPCRC) incorporates automatic mesh generation technology directly in the flow solver allowing the mesh to adapt to changing conditions and geometries during the simulation.

In the Desktop Engineering article Perfect Flight At Last, Dr. Andrew Johnson of the AHPCRC describes how moving mesh CFD techniques offer new ways to model complex fluid-structure interactions such as a hummingbird’s hovering flight.

In early 2005, we began working with the new parallel programming language Unified Parallel C (UPC) with the goal of building new types of codes that would be difficult or impossible to implement using MPI. We quickly recognized that UPC would allow us to create a new type of CFD code that supported much more complex simulations, including dynamic mesh methods.
