Flow Solutions' suite of products provides you with an integrated
set of tools for the geometric modelling, analysis and redesign
of assemblies such as the Formula One front wing presented here.
Firstly, we construct a panelled model of our wing assembly using the
GEMS preprocessor. We are likely
to import the surfaces from CAD and follow a similar procedure
to that presented for an analysis
of a rear wing. From GEMS we are able to run the
NEWPAN panel method; the results
are posted directly to the VIEWPAN
Use VIEWPAN's advanced visualisation options to understand the aerodynamic
properties of the current design. For example, use the 3D Graph Viewer
to visualise pressure distributions, and query the Spanwise Loadings
across elements. Understand the boundary layer behaviour and flow attachment
by visualising boundary layer states (laminar, turbulent, separated, bubble)
along surface streamlines.
