Aerodynamics is the study of the way air moves around solid objects. Whether these objects are stationary or moving, it is important to accurately predict flow and turbulence to enable the calculation of forces and moments acting on the object.
Perhaps the most well known use of CFD is aerodynamics, and with sustainable travel on the forefront of the world's combined, it's never been more relevant . Simulation can be used during the preliminary and conceptual design stages — before wind tunnel or flight tests are feasible.
Design alternatives can then be pursued with much more flexibility and at lower cost than in the wind tunnel. And, in theory, with highly correlated models, Fidelis can help your CFD to overcome the need for wind tunnel testing altogether.
When you collaborate with the Fidelis team, you get what YOU need. We take great care in understanding the engineering challenges that you're facing and are passionate about seeking the most innovative solutions. With decades of experience creating, running and post-processing CFD models, we're confident that we can become your trusted simulation partner.
