A partnership for next-generation computational fluid dynamics
Airbus teams up to improve aircraft aerodynamic designs
Computational fluid dynamics, or CFD, uses applied mathematics, physics and computational software to help design aerodynamically efficient aircraft. Creating high quality modelling with computational fluid dynamics requires substantial time, computational power and expense. The partnership with Germany’s DLR and France’s ONERA is helping to address these challenges and improve the accuracy of CFD models.
Thierry Michal, General Technical Director of ONERA, characterized the partnership as “an ambitious project to develop state-of-the-art simulation software,” calling it an opportunity to strengthen cooperation with Airbus.
