Flow visualisation of a cavitating hydrofoil as part of a preliminary test validation study for a large numerical and physical research project.
ESI Group's VSS is specifically designed for the complex multi-physics design challenges to optimise passenger comfort, construction and weight considerations in aerospace, automobile and mass transit systems.
We have undertaken extensive aero and fluid dynamics simulations on traditional and non-traditional foils. Boundary layer mesh with larger far field elements to simultaneously resolve the required flows and reduce computation times.
Peter Brady was at UTS yesterday to give a quick overview presentation of OpenFOAM and its ecosystem of tools for researchers. Some of the topics covered included using OpenFOAM, customising and scaling out your models from the rapid prototype to massively parallel via a hybrid cloud High Performance Computing cluster. The talk was well attended and, as it was part of a general eResearch hacky session, generated some great cross-collaboration with robotics and science researchers. Thanks to Matthew Gaston and the UTS eResearch team for organising.
