Continue Results

One of the thoughts that came to my mind is that if the flow solver fails with the deformed grid using my integrated-FFD method, it isn't worth a damn. So I fed the deformed grid results from the winglet case into the group's parallel Newton-Krylov-Schur flow solver, and it worked. It was really a sense of relief that yes, things… Read more →

Getting Ready for Another Season of Cycling

I hardly ever make new-year resolutions, but I do set goals, some ambitious, some not so much. In the past months, I had been dreaming my spectacular "2014 cycling season". And to hopefully make that happen, I am already “hard at work” with my training, even though I had not brought my bike outside yet. Looking forward to this year, these are… Read more →

FFD Results for Winglet Generation

Yes, it works for the 3D viscous grid that Lana uses for her optimization cases! On the left side we can see the FFD hull and the CFD surface grid; and on the right side we see a slice of the CFD grid. The grid is quite good, but what we want to make sure is that grid stays good… Read more →
