Computational mesh
The images in this section show the tetrahedral mesh in cross sections perpendicular to the axis. Each vertex in the mesh can be thought of as a sampling point, where the flow is evaluated. Our adaptive mesh refinement method is capable of identifying regions of the flow requiring higher resolution, depending on the quantity of interest specified in the creation of the simulation, and the residual (the sum of all local errors). Tetrahedra in these regions are subdivided into smaller tetrahedra, increasing the resolution and decreasing the local error. This subdivision continues until the error is sufficiently small throughout the entire domain. This figure shows the sequence of adaptive mesh refinements from the front (X).

Time lapse
This section shows the wind speed (velocity) around the object with the help of a time lapse movie. A time lapse movie shows the wind flow in different locations, changing over time. For the front view, the camera is placed along the wind direction.

  • How to interpret the color scale
    Colors
    Blue colors indicate that the wind speed is reduced, and red colors indicate that the wind speed is increased. The resulting wind speeds are compared to the input wind speed given in the set up.

    The flow is illustrated using two main colors, that are mapped to negative and positive values. Two main colors is typically used when a single channel of data is available (for example velocity, pressure or temperature). The color mapping is linear and relative to this specific simulation.
Snapshot
This section shows the average wind speed (velocity) around the object. The snapshot is captured at the last timestep of the simulation, and is visualized in slices. For the front view, the camera is placed along the wind direction.

A snapshot can provide detailed information about the instantaneous flow structures, that can not be obtained from a visualization of the average speed. From a design perspective, the instantaneous flow structures may be important with respect to time varying forces, or as noise sources, for example.

Average
This section shows the average wind speed (velocity) around the object, and is visualized in slices. For the front view, the camera is placed along the wind direction.

The average is illustrating the most stable flow structures over time. This can be useful for design, but keep in mind that there are instantaneous flow structures that are not visible.

    Finite Element Method
    The foundation of Ingrid Cloud is our CFD-framework, which uses the Finite Element Method (FEM) together with adaptive mesh refinement based on adjoint techniques and a posteriori error estimation. Since 2010, our technology has been regularly validated in benchmark workshops organized by the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) and by NASA. The team behind Adaptive Simulations has dedicated over 30 person-years of research, to solve and automate many typical problems regarding CFD.
