Autodesk Labs' Project Falcon Technology Preview Available
Posted Wed September 12, 2012 @01:19PM
Autodesk Labs' Project Falcon is a free technology preview that simulates air flow around vehicles, consumer products, buildings, or other objects of your choosing in a virtual wind tunnel.
Project Falcon makes use of a revolutionary automatic meshing technology that can handle flow around any geometry at any stage of design.
Load one of the included sample models or one of your own and within seconds you will be able to see and understand how air flows around it.
Results update almost in real-time in response to changes in wind-direction and speed. Visualization tools including 2D and 3D flow lines, result planes, and surface pressure shading enable interactive exploration of aerodynamic phenomena. Drag force and drag coefficient can be optionally displayed as a measure of performance.
Project Falcon utilizes a transient, incompressible fluid flow solver and LES turbulence model in a way that delivers quick results and requires very little setup on behalf of the user.
