United States Air Force Research Laboratory sponsors advanced CFD development in the areas of conjugate heat transfer and full wheel unsteady simulation
PLEASANTON, Calif - March 19, 2009 - AeroDynamic Solutions, Inc. (ADS) announced today that it is the recipient of a Small Business Innovation Research Phase II award from the United States Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL). To support AFRL initiatives in the area of advanced gas turbine research, ADS will develop advanced conjugate heat transfer and full wheel time accurate simulation capabilities for its aerospace class solver, Code Leo, and turbomachinery-optimized mesh generator, Code Wand.
"The call for higher efficiency gas turbine engines is driving new, heavily loaded designs capable of operating at extremely high temperatures and pressure ratios," said George Fan, CEO of ADS. "Turbine designers need CFD that can be counted on to accurately predict aerodynamic loads and airfoil metal temperatures under these conditions. Our aerospace-class solver is well-suited to this class of problem and we look forward to working with the Air Force Research Laboratory to bring these capabilities to market."
ADS delivers aerospace-class CFD for the global turbomachinery industry. Built on the innovations of Ron-Ho Ni and rooted in decades of cutting edge aerospace application, the ADS solution suite enables turbomachinery designers to tackle a wide range of compressor and turbine flow problems with confidence. The company is privately-held and headquartered in Pleasanton, CA. For more information or to download a free 30-day evaluation, please visit www.adscfd.com.
