Learning 3D Flow for Interactive Aerodynamic Design
Posted Friday September 7 at 8:53am
Researchers Nobuyuki Umetani and Bernd Bickel have published their work on a data-driven technique to instantly predict how fluid flows around various three-dimensional objects.
CFD simulation of new designs, even in the case of minor changes, is computationally expensive since it requires solving the Navier-Stokes equation for many time steps. To accelerate the process, Umetani and Bickel propose a machine learning framework which predicts aerodynamic forces and velocity and pressure fields given a 3D shape input.
