Nautilus Rotary Test Rig

PDL engineers provided computational fluid dynamics (CFD) consultancy support to the project through the development of validated models using the ANSYS CFX package complete with a customised graphical user interface (GUI) and a sub-modelling approach.

The CFD approach was adopted in order to allow the designers of the Nautilus to validate the magnitude of loads that would typically need to be applied during testing, and would subsequently be used by Nautilus clients to validate the specific loads their device would be subjected to when installed in a specific location.
