What class of problem is the ADS flow solver Code Leo designed to address?
The ADS flow solver, Code Leo, is a fast and accurate solver for general flow configurations. It solves the Reynolds' Averaged Navier-Stokes equations numerically. Tempered by decades of cutting edge aerospace application, Code Leo is designed to cover a wide range of Mach numbers from 0.005 to 3.5, and accepts both structured and unstructured mesh as input to support a large class of flow problems.
Though Leo is a generalized flow solver, it is particularly adept at addressing turbomachinery-class problems. It is capable of handling anything from 2D cascade simulation on a desktop to large scale, multi-stage time accurate simulations across a cluster of high performance servers. Code Leo has been applied to a wide variety of axial and radial turbines and compressors, wind turbines and high performance jet engines.
