Fuel acquisition simulation

Baffle design along with the use of FLOW-3D‘s surface tension model to control fuel orientation

FLOW-3D is a powerful computational fluid dynamics modeling software that provides engineers valuable insight into a number of relevant type analyses for the aerospace industry. This includes fuel stability and acquisition, cryogenic temperature regulation, PMDs, cavitation, electric charge distribution, and more. Physical models advantageous to this industry are accurate liquid/gas interface (free-surface) modeling, thermal solutions with phase and electrostatics. Accurate free-surface modeling using FLOW-3D’s TruVOF, an advanced algorithm for tracking free-surface flows, is necessary for many of the other relevant models to be possible.
