Simulating Aerothermal Shape Distortion of Hypersonic Vehicles

How can designers of hypersonic aircraft overcome the ‘heat barrier’ using simulation to better understand aerothermal shape distortion (aka aerothermoelasticity, or fluid-structural-thermal interaction - FTSI)? This guest blog by ADFA explains how multiphysics simulation helps designers of hypersonic vehicles account for aerothermal shape distortion (which can compromise a hypersonic vehicle’s aerodynamic performance) through to the risk of catastrophic material failures, using tools that can simulate both the aerodynamics as well as the thermal and structural response.

Guest Blog by Prof. David Fletcher: Importance of following Best Practices for Scale Resolving Turbulence Modelling

Guest Blog explaining the significance of the new Stress-Blended Eddy Simulation (SBES) turbulence approach which makes use of the best available models for both near-wall and far field accuracy, within one single scale-resolving CFD simulation, including a recording of highlights from our recent webinar.
