Aerodynamic Performance Engineering

Simulation of airflow over a wing

Aerodynamic performance engineering affects not just the airframe but a multitude of other aircraft systems. The design and performance of systems including propulsion, environmental controls, landing gears, ice protection, and avionics depend on optimal aerodynamic performance. Simcenter solutions offer accurate, multi-disciplinary simulations, testing, and automated design space exploration, helping engineers discover better aerodynamic designs, faster.

New emission regulations, competition from newer players in the market, and innovative aircraft and propulsion concepts are driving aircraft design today. Inability to adapt aerodynamic product development to these new challenges will result in poor financial and program performance.

Over the last 15 years, simulation has played a major role in aircraft design, extending beyond external aerodynamic characterization to include applications of aerodynamic noise, belly fairing and wing-body fairing design, APU inlet and ducting as well as multiple applications of internal fluid dynamics.

With an accurate aerodynamic digital twin delivering performance prediction and design improvements in a short time, our simulation and testing solutions are key to designing better aircraft in the current landscape.
