Print version Email story Tweet story
Announcements Advanced Design Technology (ADT), the global leader in advanced turbomachinery design codes are pleased to announce a two day aero/hydro-dynamic design training workshop for incompressible flow turbomachinery applications, such as Pumps and Fans. The workshop will be held in London on 3-4 April 2006.

ADT will introduce the inverse design process and compare the benefits over conventional design methods. The workshop will enable the participants to apply the unique features of TURBOdesign-1 3D inverse design code, coupled with TURBOcfd in the Aerodynamic and Hydrodynamic design of their own specific blade row under the supervision of ADT’s experienced design staff.

Testing, CFD at Center of Shuttle Foam Ramp Debate
Posted Fri December 09, 2005 @05:36PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
News NASA managers plan to meet next week to discuss whether to ship a shuttle external fuel tank to Florida in early February without so-called PAL ramp wind delectors in hopes wind tunnel tests and computer modeling will prove the ramps aren't needed to shield external pressurization lines and a cable tray from aerodynamic buffeting.

"The thing that I'm keenly interested in is the actual test data," LeRoy Cain, manager of launch processing at the Kennedy Space Center, said. "The CFD, it will either confirm or not confirm whatever the test data says is right. But that flow field is non intuitive. It's extremely complex."
