Airbus Helicopters
Airbus Helicopters Weight & Balance (W&B) team is tasked with collecting and analyzing data to forecast the weight of a product during the conceptualization phase. Collecting useful and up-to-date data in a standardized way from this wide group of stakeholders was proving to be a challenge for the W&B team, slowing down both the interrogation of data and the resulting decision making. With the manual upload of data, there was no way to create a standardized report that could be updated in real time, either internally by the different product development departments or externally by suppliers. These were the problems Altair was tasked with creating a solution for.

Investigating Aeroelastic Performance of Multi-MegaWatt Wind Turbine Rotors Using CFD
Recent trends in wind power technology are focusing on increasing power output through an increase in rotor diameter. As the rotor diameter
increases, aeroelastic effects become increasingly important in the design of an efficient blade. A detailed understanding of the fluid elastic
coupling can lead to improved designs; yielding more power, reduced maintenance, and ultimately leading to an overall reduction in the cost
of electricity. In this work, a high fidelity Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) methodology is presented for performing fully coupled Fluid-
Structure Interaction (FSI) simulations of wind turbine blades and rotors using a commercially available flow solver, AcuSolve. We demonstrate
the technique using a 13.2 MW blade design.
