From Idea to Prototype
In three easy steps
Step 1. Prepare your design
Use OpenVSP, Gmsh, or any other meshing software to create a mesh of your design. The Aviumtechnologies Panel Method supports structured and unstructured meshes. The support of unstructured meshes allows the simulation of complex body shapes.
Step 2. Perform simulations
Perform steady and unsteady simulations with the Aviumtechnologies Panel Method. Arbitrary body motions can be prescribed, allowing simulations of wind turbines and rotors in hover. Use different methods to calculate the surface pressure and the robust wake-body intersection handling.
Step 3. Examine results
Examine your results by visualising them with industry-standard visualisation & analysis tools such as ParaView and Tecplot. In addition, you can visualise your results using the web-based APM viewer. Please refer to the documentation for more information on supported file formats.
