Programming Computational Wind Tunnels to Save Millions – Product Design & Development

See on Scoop.itTurbines Design & Power

The companies designing turbines for jet engines and electricity production face such challenges today. With multiple rotors spinning in excess of 15,000 revolutions per minute facing incoming airflows of hundreds of miles per hour, the dynamics of the air’s behavior becomes fodder for an engineering student’s worst nightmare. And although computer simulations of even simplified systems can take weeks to run even on modern supercomputers, it is well worth the time and effort.
