The virtual wind tunnel application allows you to understand the aerodynamic effects of air, or other fluids, moving past a solid object.
This fully automated application can simulate the physical effects of external fluid flow with respect to drag, lift, side forces and sound sources. Upload a model, and initiate the simulation within a few minutes. You will receive high resolution images, time-step videos and relevant plots to help you understand the result of the simulation. We also improve our report and result pages continuously, and aim to make the reports better and better. Our platform conducts high fidelity, transient (time resolved) flow simulations in 3D. These simulations are also referred to as Large Eddy Simulations (LES). The computations are performed on a supercomputer with an optimal choice of compute cores for the simulation (up to 50.000 cores). This enables simulations close to reality (depending on the chosen level of resolution).
The method, which uses adaptive optimization of the computational mesh, has been published in peer reviewed journals and has been validated in several benchmark workshops.
