CFD/Aerodynamics Research Complex Flow Analysis
Employment History
Rocket Cone Aerodynamics Analyst Aug.2011-March.2013
German Aerospace Center
Aerodynamic analyst at German Aerospace center and Aerodynamic institute (RWTH) collaborated project ROTEX (Rocket technology experiment). • Aerodynamic Flow Analysis on a wedge at cone part of rocket for investigating the flow separation for wedge angle optimization • Modeling of the cone and optimum mesh generation of the rocket, tasks has been continued with computational analysis for flow separation. • Turbulent and laminar flow analysis using internal flow solver codes. Flow sep-aration investigation at different altitudes. • Comparative study has been done between numerical simulation results and experimental wind tunnel data which obtained parallel at German Aerospace center, Cologne. Results have been presented at preliminary design review and critical design review meetings.
CFD Analyst Feb.2011-July.2011
CFD analyst at CAE department, RICARDO GmbH, Aachen. • Aerodynamic flow analysis on F1 car body using VECTIS-CFD tool for German School F1 competition project. And in a different project: Thermal analysis in gas chambers. • Three dimensional flow analyses have been done for optimization calculation. • Aerodynamics characteristics simulation was performed for external flow on the F1 external body with 3D VECTIS tool. • Optimum flow characteristics set was obtained.
