The second example will be a store separation from a delta wing at supersonic speed. On the solver side, the motion of the store will be computed using FLUENTís built-in 6DOF solver. Shocks will be captured using dynamic adaption (local refinement of the mesh), and the dynamic mesh will handle the spring deformation and any local remeshing necessary to accommodate the movement of the store within the domain. Tecplot 360ís animation capabilities will be used to visualize the mesh motion, the flow variables, and the shock surfaces.
