Computational Fluid Dynamics Extensively Used in Aerodynamic Design

13 Sep 2011 • by Natalie Aster

A recently released report “Global Computational Fluid Dynamics Market in Aerospace and Defense Industry 2010-2014” by Infiniti Research reveals that the Global Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) market in the Aerospace and Defense industry is expected to grow at a CAGR of 12.7 percent.

The report, which covers the Americas as well as the EMEA and APAC regions, indicates that the market is being driven by the extensive use of CFD in aerodynamic design.

According to Technavio’s industry analyst, “CFD codes are extensively used for designing aircraft, helicopters, missile systems, and submarines. Vortical flows around fighter aircrafts are computed using CFD under transonic conditions. Experiments have shown that pressure distributions over aircraft wings computed by CFD tools are very well predicted and match measured data. This software is being extensively used by the aerospace and defense industry as it reduces flight and missile tests while also ensuring safety.”
