Unmanned Aerial Vehicles | CD-adapco
An encompassing simulation tool to meet today's UAV design challenges
Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) are the latest up and coming technology. The military has used the so-called drones for years, and as UAVs push to expand out of military and into civilian use, new designs must be quickly created and tested.
  • STAR-CCM+ offers a range of state-of-the-art technologies for volume mesh generation including the pioneering polyhedral mesh type as shown here on an innovative unmanned aerial vehicle.
  • This image shows the tangential velocity fields and surface pressures from aerodynamic interactive coupling effects between unmanned aerial vehicles flying in close proximity to each other.

STAR-CCM+ has all the tools one needs to design and test UAV designs, from analyzing aerodynamics, studying lift and testing various design parameters to find the optimum solution.

In addition to all the usual requirements for aircaft design, UAVs have special needs, especially in terms of batteries and electric motors.

STAR-CCM+ includes packages for all these needs as well. Please see our Batteries Page and our Electric Machines page for more information.
