Integration of CFD and Experimental Results at VKI in Low-Speed Aerodynamic Design
VON KARMAN INST FOR FLUID DYNAMICS RHODE-SAINT-GENESE (BELGIUM)
Pagination or Media Count:
Three examples of recent investigations combining CFD analysis and wind tunnel tests at the von Karman Institute for Fluid Dynamics VKI are presented to illustrate the integration process between experimental tests and numerical results. For each project, the requirements and the methodology were different but the final goal was to obtain an optimized aerodynamic design. The first project presented is dealing with a fluid-structure interaction problem. The second project concerns the aerodynamic design of a new Belgian polar base station for Antarctica and the last project concerns the design of an ultra-streamlined land vehicle for the next Solar World Challenge.
