Aircraft Surface Generation

  • Helmut Sobieczky
Part of the Notes on Numerical Fluid Mechanics (NNFM) book series (NNFM, volume 44)


Surface generation software is being created with emphasis on parametric description of aircraft components and their junction. Applications are illustrated and examples are shared with project partners for their development of CFD mesh generation. Industry partners in the meantime and within this collaboration use this approach to develop a powerful tool for transport aircraft component design, establishing practical interaction between a theoretical aerodynamics group and the project design engineers.The goal is shaping geometry generator codes to become fast interactive tools supporting the use of aerodynamic knowledge bases in future design expert systems using modern graphic workstations.
