In this session we will introduce industry specific applications from the aerospace industry and how Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is used to solve problems and optimize subsystems. We will begin our discussion with the analysis of flow over an aircraft wing. Then, we will use switch gears and understand how aircraft engines generate thrust by analyzing the flow through a converging nozzle. We will then discuss regarding high-lift devices by studying the flow over a multi-element airfoil. Finally, we will wrap up by looking at an example to understand the physics of high speed airflow over an aircraft wing section which is significantly influenced by the compressible nature of air.

In this session we will introduce industry specific applications from the aerospace industry and how Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is used to ensure safe and optimized design of different subsystems. We will learn how to ensure that resonance within the operational frequency range is avoided by performing modal analysis of a drone blade. We also perform modal analyses of a recreational drone and of a lightweight airplane. We wrap up this session by performing stress analyses to optimize the design of a helicopter rotor pitch arm.
