The Solver Sweeper is our automation to ease the laborious task of collecting data from your simulation. The work of setting up your simulation is only half the story. The other half is to extract large sweeps of data for range of flow conditions and vectors. Indeed, this is the part where you would write a script to collect the data in the background while you do more important things. We recognized this need and further removed the need for you to write a script! Instead, use FlightStream®'s Solver Sweeper to do the task. Open the toolbox, pick the sweep ranges, and click the launch button...and watch as the spreadsheet is populated while FlightStream runs automatically!
The Solver Sweeper ships with every version of FlightStream®, and is accessible to students, educators and all field engineers who are building the next big thing!
Automated aerodynamic loads, moments and forces in any user coordinate system
Generate large angle-of-attack, side-slip and velocity sweeps in minutes
If you are a Stability & Control (S&C) engineer, then your needs are very different from that of someone investigating flow physics using CFD. What you probably need is fast access, with limited user load, to the S&C parameters, coefficients and derivatives. To this end, we have designed the S&C toolbox in FlightStream®.
As part of the joint effort between Research in Flight and DARCorporation, the S&C toolbox has been created for FlightStream® as an add-on UI toolbox that allows quick access to all of the S&C engineer's needs. This one-stop shop allows you to compute all the loads, moments, static and dynamic derivatives and more by one click of a button.
Take the FlightStream® solution for your geometry and get the data you really need!
Compute static and dynamic derivatives automatically on your simulation
Local stability coordinate systems
Customized derivatives and analysis functions
Export spreadsheets of S&C data from your flow solutions
