Analysis Modules

Stark/AMI maintains various analysis modules which utilize CFD outputs to perform specialized calculations and analyses: 

  • FLIDYN – Non-linear 6-DOF flight dynamics simulation with simplified integration from CFD output.
  • FSWAVE – Non-linear free surface characteristics of a free surface disturbed by an arbitrary hull configuration. VSAERO solution files provide surface pressure, skin friction, and hydrodynamic forces.
  • ICE – Calculate water droplet trajectory and ice collection characteristics. VSAERO solution files are used to provide body panel geometry and flow field data.
