Validation cases for Aeolus Aero Sketch Pad

This section shows comparisons of the computational results with wind tunnel data and CFD results for fixed wings and propellers.

Fixed-Wing Validation Case

This validation case compares the aerodynamic kernel in Aeolus ASP by means of comparison with wind tunnel tests and CFD results.

Propeller Validation Case

This report shows a comparison of the aerodynamic properties predicted by numerical simulations using Aeolus ASP, for a propeller. 

Propeller Validation Case

This report provides a comparison of the performance of a propeller as predicted through numermical simulations using Aeolus ASP and wind tunnel results.

Fixed-Wing Validation Case

This report is intended to validate the aerodynamic kernel in Aeolus ASP

This report compares the aerodynamic kernel in Aeolus ASP by means of comparison with wind tunnel tests and CFD results. It compares the wing surface pressure distribution and induced drag for 3 wing configurations:

As result, Aeolus ASP shows excellent agreement with wind tunnel measurements.

Propeller Validation Case

Comparison of Aerodynamic Simulations for the DJI R3390 Propeller

The flow solver Aeolus ASP is used for the numerical simulations. It is based on potential flow and has been developed to predict the aerodynamic performance of lifting bodies, such as fixed wings and propellers. This report shows a comparison of the aerodynamic properties predicted by numerical simulations using Aeolus ASP with OEM specifications, and flight test data. 

Testing the aerodynamic performance

In this video you van see the aerodynamic performance test of the R3390 blades. Increased high-frequency noise at 3400 RPM due to eigenfrequency of the test stand.

Propeller Validation Case

Comparison of Aerodynamic Simulations with Wind Tunnel Results for a Propeller

This report shows a comparison of the aerodynamic properties predicted by numerical simulations using Aeolus ASP and wind tunnel results for a 9ft diameter propeller.

Doing aerodynamic wing analysis using 3d panel methods is very fast compared to CFD methods and suitable for conceptual and preliminary design of aircraft wings. The innovative potential flow kernel in Aeolus ASP enables simple and fast aerodynamic wing design analysis on a laptop or desktop pc.
