Intelligent Light’s Applied Research Group has completed a 5-year CFD research projectfor the US Army’s Vertical Lift Center of Excellence.
The National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) highlighted the work in their Access magazine. The project included the use of coupled Eulerian and vortex particle method codes to achieve the accuracy required to model the rotor and wake interactions. The vortex particle methods are computationally expensive and benefitted from HPC systems with GPU accelerators, a first for rotorcraft CFD code development. Read the full story.

“Sometimes apparently simple things have an underlying complexity that is astounding. Take a bicycle wheel for example. It’s round, has a rim, a tire and some spokes and turns in a circle. Simple, right? — Wrong.”
See how Intelligent Light’s ongoing studies are helping provide a bridge to HPC enabled CFD for Small and Medium Manufacturers (SMMs). The work showcases techniques for high productivity, CFD data management, and HPC cloud-friendly workflows.

FieldView software from Intelligent Light. Isosurfaces highlight vortex wake structures generated by the wind turbine’s rotor blades, the tower and nacelle, and how they interact with one another.
In a cover and feature article, Earl P.N. Duque, manager of Applied Research discusses the challenges and state of the art technologies that are in use today to increase performance and decrease the cost of energy for wind energy.
“Designing the most efficient and effective wind turbine calls for modeling tools that provide accurate, reliable numerical predictions of wind-turbine rotor performance over a machine’s full range of operating conditions. Simulating real-world conditions using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) lets users understand flow phenomena and their effects on the system, better predict the system’s power output, and analyze the types of vibration, fatigue, and other wear-and-tear the wind turbine may experience for the conditions modeled.”
