Realizing the Benefits of Overset Mesh in Aerospace and Defense

Description: 

Overset Mesh technology (or Chimera Mesh, if you prefer) has been around for decades but has primarily stayed in a small, niche aerodynamics community. Although powerful in their own right, overset mesh tools to date have been purpose-built for specific applications and, let’s face it, a bit tricky to use.

A live demonstration shows the entire Overset Mesh CFD analysis process – including geometry preparation, meshing, solving and post-processing.

We explore the benefits of Overset Mesh through several application cases, including:

  • Aircraft/spacecraft separation events
  • Aircraft control surface performance
  • Thrust reverser deployment
  • Rotorcraft take-off and landing
  • Amphibious vehicle water entry
  • Vehicle flooding and water management
  • Gearbox lubrication and losses
  • Valves, dampers and pumps

Whether you work with air, ground or water-based vehicles, this webinar is for you. If you have ever used Overset Mesh before, you will be amazed at how the technology has advanced and how it can readily be used to increase modeling accuracy, reduce simulation time and improve designs.
