External aerodynamics

The virtual wind tunnel module available within XFlow makes full-scale model simulations possible from the classical airfoil tests to detailed aircraft configurations. It is possible to compute the complete polar of the aircraft even in high lift configurations. The solver employs Large Eddy Simulation turbulence modeling and advanced non-equilibrium wall models.

Cabin ventilation

XFlow's thermal solver can be applied to simulate the heating, ventilating and air conditioning system in the aircraft cabin to achieve passenger thermal comfort.

Moving parts

XFlow's ability to solve problems involving moving parts allow the analysis of varying conditions like the deployment of the landing gear, stowing flaps, or rotary wings.
