Project Falcon is our free technology preview that simulates air flow around vehicles, consumer products, buildings, or other objects of your choosing in a virtual wind tunnel. You can load one of the included sample models or one of your own and within seconds you will be able to see and understand how air flows around it. Results update almost in real-time in response to changes in wind-direction and speed. Visualization tools including 2D and 3D flow lines, result planes, and surface pressure shading enable interactive exploration of aerodynamic phenomena. Drag force and drag coefficient can be optionally displayed as a measure of performance.
As part of this update, the team has a snazzy new YouTube video:
We make technology previews to get feedback. We'd like to hear of your success or failures with this preview. How can you provide feedback? Let me count the ways. Six.
The preview will operate until March 15, 2013.
Bags of wind are alive in the lab.
