A CFD Haiku

CFD Haiku As a tribute to the "art" of CFD, we are kicking off the Official CFD Review Haiku Poetry Contest. A haiku is a small contemplative poem which valorizes nature, color, season, contrasts and surprises. For our contest, the topic must be related to the field of CFD. The basic haiku format is three lines of 17 syllables arranged in a 5-7-5 pattern.

You are encouraged to send in your CFD haiku for publication here each week. There is no reward other than perhaps personal enlightenment. So, silence the mind, yield to spontaneity and send in your CFD haiku today.

This week's CFD haiku:

Difficult question...
what flow field hidden within?
computer reveals

Application: CFD Used to Study Surface to Air Missles
Posted Mon December 10, 2001 @02:23PM

Application Scientists at the NAS Division's Applications Branch have used NASA's Cart3D CFD software to analyze the unsteady flight of infrared-guided, man-portable surface-to-air missles (SAMs).

The Cart3D solver's capabilities were extended to simulate the unique flight characteristics of the SAMs which make them difficult to simulate computationally. Scientists used the NASA Advanced Supercomputing facility at Ames Research Center to conduct the steady and unsteady simulations on both a 1024-processor and 512-processor SGI Origin 3000 system. More than 720 simulations were completed on meshes totaling almost 2.4 billion cells.

"Results from preliminary NAS studies presented to the DIA have been met with enthusiastic support," said Mike Aftosmis. The steady and unsteady results have shed new light on the flight characteristics of these missiles.
The Cart3D package is an inviscid Cartesian grid flow solver which provides end-to-end simulation of three-dimensional flows around complex vehicles.

News COSMOS/Flow, the CFD package from Structural Research & Analysis Corp, has been certified for UGS' Solid Edge Version 10. Embedded in Solid Edge and featuring an easy to use Windows-native interface, COSMOS/Flow is fully associative with Solid Edge Version 10.
"The COSMOS/ suite of analysis products is perfect for Solid Edge users who need to perform stress, flow or electromagnetic simulation, but don't have the time to learn three different analysis programs. With COSMOS/ software, all analysis is done within the same easy to use interface, dramatically reducing the learning curve and speeding up productivity." says Suchit Jain, VP of Marketing for SRAC.
