"Subsonic and Supersonic Flow Around Airfoils and Nose Cones"

Research into subsonic and supersonic flow around airfoils was performed to gain a better knowledge of Ansys Fluent and aerodynamic properties. First, forced convection over a flat plate was analyzed, after which flow over an airfoil in transonic conditions was then analyzed over a range of angles of attack. More complex flow simulations of blood flow in an artery and a converging-diverging nozzle were performed. Flow around a rotating wind turbine was analyzed to examine downstream effects. Finally, an analysis of supersonic flow over the blunt nose cone of an X-15 is presented, and analyses for all projects are discussed.
