It involves calculating flow interactions between solid boundaries, such as flat plates or airfoils, and liquid or gaseous mediums. The CFD code currently being used is a simple computer code algorithm consisting of time marching through millions of calculations and numerous iterations. This report involves a comparison of this current code and a newer version of the same code which involves periodically retrieving a set of solver coefficients from a database of settings optimized for fast convergence. This process enables the computer to solve these calculations using the optimum variables and leads to a shorter computational time frame. Considering how a full CFD run through of a fully assembled aircraft can take weeks, any time saved leads to a reduced bottom line and a faster design and build time for the aerospace industry.
