STARCS CFD Calculation.

STARCS Computational Fluid Dynamics 

STARCS uses a variety of calculation methods to study the flow field around wind tunnel test objects.
Starting from a model geometry Solid Works is used to generate a description that can be used as a starting point for subsequent grid generation. The flow field can then be computed using a CFD method.
For problems not requiring a Navier-Stokes or Euler description the software package PSW from AeroLogic is used. This package contains a panel method for the fluid flow analysis.

Main Features

STARCS Motorized Sting Arm is primarely intended for store release simulation but can also serve as a very flexible and accurate probe holder for pressure or flow field measurement. The rig is extremely rigid and can perform any trajectory even under extreme loads thanks to advanced deflection compensation.
