Rotorcraft Hub Wake Analysis Using Overset Meshes

From the 2016 Q4 issue of The Connector:

figure2b_gridResearchers at Pennsylvania State University’s Applied Research Laboratory share an overview of their ongoing work involving overset grid CFD simulations of an incompressible rotorcraft hub they performed using the overset meshing tools available in Pointwise. Preliminary CFD results show good agreement with empirical rotor hub wake measurements. Pointwise has become an integral part of these researchers’ toolset as they continue their investigations into important flow phenomena for their sponsors in the rotorcraft industry. (more)
