Accuracy of Transient Versus Steady State Forces on a Rudder Operating in a Propeller Slipstream

In computational fluid dynamics (CFD), a transient simulation is in general more costly than computing the steady state of the system, if such a state exists. The velocity field produced by the propeller blades upstream of Continue reading

Aerodynamic Loads on External Stores – Saab 39 Gripen: Evaluation of CFD methods for estimating loads on external stores

ABSTRACT

External stores mounted on aircraft generate loads which need to be estimated before first takeoff. These loads can be measured in a wind tunnel but since the possible store configurations are basically endless, testing them all is neither Continue reading
