Fluid Structure Interaction Using ANSYS

Aerodynamics and Fluttering Study of an Aircraft Wing

Fluid structure interaction problems in general are too complex to solve analytically and so they have to be analyzed by means of experiments or numerical simulation. Studying these phenomena requires modeling of both fluid and structure. In this case study, aero elastic behavior and flutter instability of aircraft wing in the subsonic incompressible flight speed regime are investigated.

  

You'll Learn About The Benefits of ANSYS in the Cloud:

  • The aero elastic behavior and flutter instability of an aircraft wing in the subsonic incompressible flight speed regime are investigated using ANSYS in the Cloud.

  • The computation requirement for a fine mesh (12 million cells) exceeds the capacity of a normal workstation. The Cloud HPC setup completed the simulation within a reasonable run time (2.25 hrs).

  • ANSYS Workbench increased productivity by enabling different iterations in the experiments by varying the simulation models within the workbench environment.
