    Flight Simulator X: Real-time Computational Fluid Dynamics for Flight Simulation

    Language:
    English
    A service oriented architecture is described that enables computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations to run alongside a human-in-the-loop flight simulator; thereby informing the behavior of a simulated aircraft whilst it is being piloted.

        The modeling of aerodynamic effects in real-time flight simulators is a continuously evolving field. It is becoming increasingly relevant for flight simulators to more accurately describe the local unsteady environmental flow around the vehicle, in a time-accurate way for applications such as wake vortex and helicopter-ship airwake interaction scenarios. This is important from both development and training perspectives. This is an extremely challenging problem that is being tackled using a variety of techniques.
