Iso-surfaces of Q criterion are ones that out-line flow
regions with local rotation, indicating a turbulent eddy.
“Q” is a mathematical quantity commonly used to illustrate
turbulent vortices in
a flow field.
To bring costs down, wind-energy firms are recognizing the design benefits of numerical simulation. Transitioning to a simulation-based design process lets OEMs optimize performance and increase a turbine’s power output.
A valuable tool in this process is Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software. It has traditionally played a role in the design of rotorcraft, fixed-wing aircraft, and even wind-turbine blades. Previous limitations in computing power kept most simulations focused on small portions of a design with a limited inclusion of physical phenomena. Perhaps the most accepted use of CFD in the industry is for analysis of 2D airfoils. Although an important application, recent advances in computing power and software provide greater capabilities for wind-turbine designers.

Much more goes into a golf club than simply wood, iron and graphite. To shape the performance, the distinctive appearance, the personalized feel and even the sound of the club striking the ball, manufacturers must precisely engineer every aspect of the design.
Market–leading golf club manufacturer Cleveland Golf is a pioneer in the design and production of advanced clubs and the developer of the number-one wedge in the golf industry. The company’s engineering research team uses HyperWorks to drive product innovation and tune performance of forward-looking designs while developing market-leading woods, irons, wedges and putters.
