Geometry Generator for CFD and Applied Aerodynamics

  • H. Sobieczky
Part of the International Centre for Mechanical Sciences book series (CISM, volume 366)


This chapter is intended to combine the knowledge bases of applied geometry with those of hydrodynamics and aerodynamics, including the modest additions presented in the two previous book chapters focusing on the interaction between compressible flow with shock waves and flow boundary conditions. The need to have flexible tools for effectively influencing the phenomena occurring in high speed flow calls for development of fast and flexible software to create shapes in a way to have easy access to the crucial shape-generating parameters controlling these flow phenomena, and at the same time observe the constraints given by structural and other practical limitations.
