Imagining a LEGO Technic Aero Hawk helicopter taking flight
Simcenter FLOEFD can make the seemingly impossible come true
The subject of this white paper, Simcenter™ FLOEFD™ for NX™ software, was selected as the tool to analyze the possibility of the LEGO® Technic Aero Hawk helicopter taking flight. Using the new sliding mesh technology of Simcenter FLOEFD to simulate the main rotor’s rotation, this study serves as a good test to see how Siemens Digital Industries Software’s computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation tool would handle the rotation of more complex geometry
