Relative roles of computational fluid dynamics and wind tunnel testing in the development of aircraft

Much is talked of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), concerning its role in the possibility of bringingdown the costs and turn-around times in the design and development of aircraft. Views have been expressed, at one extreme end, that wind tunnel testing … Continue reading

The J2 Universal Tool-Kit – Dynamic Behaviour Analysis

From Steady State or Static Analyses, a lot of information can be gathered about the stability, behaviour and characteristics of the aircraft. However to investigate the aircraft further we need to look at dynamic behaviour. Dynamic analysis uses a technique … Continue reading
