This demonstration illustrates how AeroCFD® uses sequential command buttons on the toolbar to perform subsonic, transonic, supersonic and hypersonic analyses without the need for commands embedded deep within the file menu. This CFD analysis uses the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th and 7th command buttons on the toolbar for the analysis of a 3-D projectile. The toolbar displays the following screens during the analysis, Fluid Properties, Generate geometry, Mesh control parameters, Solution control parameters and Plot results. This analysis demonstrates how to model a 3-D projectile having an ogive nose and ogive boat tail operating at Mach 2 and 5 degrees AOA. This analysis required 24 minutes and 200 iterations to achieve a pressure change per iteration convergence criteria of 7.27E-8. The AeroCFD library of built-in airframe shapes include nose cone, body tube-1, expansion/reduction section, body tube-2 and expansion/reduction section in addition to imported airframe shapes, fins any many more options ...
