During this one hour event Martin Schmid from Airbus discusses how shorter development cycles are the key for competitive advantage in the aircraft industry. He will investigate how achieving this competitive advantage requires the analysis of system performance and reliability at an early stage to reduce the risk of late equipment changes with impact on the schedule. Specifically Martin addresses how quality computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is required with validated models to meet the criteria.
Examples and demonstrations in this event focus on environmental control systems, and how simulation can be used to not only reduce turn around time but produce more accurate and reliable results. Presenters show examples of how integrate fluid dynamics and heat transfer simulation technology coupled with the ease of automated meshing of complex geometry is allowing engineers to investigate solutions that have not been possible in the past.
