Aerodynamic Simulations

As part of a graduate course I took in Aerodynamics, I got to work with a range of simulation tools that allowed me to better understand aerodynamic performance analysis. Some of the software I used included Fluent (ANSYS), JavaFoil and the MATLAB Aerodynamics Toolbox. I also got to used techniques such computational fluid dynamics, conformal mapping of airfoils and vortex lattice methods. Some of the highlights of this class include analyzing real aircraft, such as the Apache AH-64!

Pressure Dist. on SWIFT Glider

I simulated the pressure distribution across a SWIFT glider using a vortex lattice method in order to guide the design of the airfoil for aerodynamic performance and structural integrity
