Multiphysics-focused CFD Solutions for Hypersonic Vehicles
The interest in hypersonic flight has escalated in recent years, not only for re-entry vehicles but also for civil aircraft and various military applications. CAE tools are an effective way to gain design insight during the development of hypersonic vehicles as wind tunnel tests struggle to replicate the extreme conditions during flight, is late in the design phase, and are very costly to perform. However, these simulation tools often solve different physics separately, neglecting the multi-physics effect, such as fluid-structure interaction, seen under real-world conditions; further, each tool usually requires technical experts in its simulation field. Thus, it renders them unable to perform true multi-physics simulations in a daily design workflow.
Hexagon provides an innovative CFD solution known for its ease of use and accuracy for supersonic and hypersonic flow. Together with the Hexagon CAE portfolio, with a strong pedigree of co-simulation, it is easy to couple CFD together with Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and Multi-Body Dynamics (MBD) to perform two- or three-way transient multi-physics focused co-simulations.
In this webinar, we will cover the current state of Hexagon CFD solution for hypersonic flow simulations with the release of Cradle CFD 2022, including:
• Predicting the aerothermodynamic flow field around various objects and showcasing validation cases
• Fluid-Structure interaction for structural integrity
• Safe store separation predictions
Following the webinar, you will be able to join in a live Q&A to have your specific questions answered.
We also encourage you to forward this invitation to others in your organization who may be interested in joining this webinar.
