Simulation of Fan Acoustics using LES on Overset Grids

Professor Kozo Fujii recently shared preliminary results of a large-eddy simulation of an axial fan that were computed on overset structured grids. Decomposition techniques were then used to compute the fan’s acoustic signature. A journal article and conference presentation are … Continue reading

Survey Results: Mesh Types, Part 2

The Mesh Types survey included several questions with short-form answers and we shared that data last month. Here we have answers to the long-form, open-ended question about what types of meshes you said you wanted to generate. So let’s start … Continue reading

Survey Results: Mesh Types, Part 1

We asked and 201 of you answered. You told us about the types of meshes you’re generating (structured hex, unstructured or hybrid, Cartesian), whether they’re overset or high-order, how big they are, and more. We reveal your answers here in … Continue reading
