## F1 in Schools Dragster CFD Analysis

F1 in Schools is an international competition for student teams (aged 9-19) to design, analyze, build, and race CO2 jet-powered cars (dragsters). Beyond promoting Formula 1 (F1) to the next generation of fans, F1 in Schools aims to give a flavor of running an F1 team by exposing students to finance, marketing, and engineering. Of course the most exciting area (as in F1) is engineering, where students get to use state-of-the-art 3D CAD/CAM software to design and build their dragsters. Performance optimization through analysis of the dragster design is also encouraged, which inevitably leads to Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD).

## Cyclone Separator

Cyclone separators are used in many industries to separate particles from a fluid, where the fluid is usually air or water. The types of particles vary widely, from wood chips to dust. You can find cyclones in a variety of places and industries.

## Screencast of Transient Air Flow Over a Pitching Wing

This screencast shows an entire simulation performed using our Caedium Professional add-on; starting with geometry creation, motion specification, and physics definition, and finishing with transient 3D pressure coefficient contours on the wing surface. Using our intuitive drag-and-drop tools you'll see how simple and easy it is to simulate air flow within our Caedium unified simulation environment.

## DLR F4 Wing-Body Calculation

The DLR F4 is an idealized wing-body model of a passenger jetliner, such as the Boeing 737, that was tested in multiple wind tunnels for comparison with Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) calculations.

## NLR 7301 Multi-Element Airfoil Calculation

Multi-element airfoils are common sights on open-wheel racing cars and aircraft during take-off and landing.

## NACA 4415 Airfoil Calculation

Rotor blade design is a key element in determining the efficiency of a wind turbine. A crucial precursor to a final rotor blade design is to select one or more 2D airfoil sections to form a smooth blade profile. A wind tunnel study of a 2D airfoil (NACA 4415), typical of an airfoil used by wind turbine rotors, is compared with predictions made by our Panel Flow add-on.

## Potential Flow Around an Ellipsoid

Comparing a computation for the flow around an ellipsoid from our Panel Flow add-on with exact analytic potential theory is a good test (or verification) of our panel method implementation.

## Potential Flow Around a Sphere

Comparing a computation for the flow around a sphere from our Panel Flow add-on with exact analytic potential theory is a good test (or verification) of our panel method implementation.
