Digital Wind Tunnel

Depending on the requirement profile of the problem to be solved, we decide whether to use our experimental aerodynamic test facilities or numerical flow simulations. In certain circumstances, a combination of both tools may be chosen.

The advantage of investigations in the digital wind tunnel (the numerical simulation environment for aerodynamic investigations) is that they can take place at an early stage without requiring any hardware. Because test hardware is not required, costs can be reduced and results can be achieved more quickly.

We also have detailed digital models of our wind tunnels, which can be used to develop this further or as part of validation projects for improving accuracy.
