Title Multidisciplinary Thermal Analysis of Hot Aerospace Structures.
Publication Date May 2010
Media Count 4p
Personal Author C. Farhat
Abstract The numerically stable loosely-coupled partitioned solution procedures for the fast steady and unsteady multidisciplinary thermal analysis of hot aerospace structures were further refined to accelerate convergence in the steady-state case and improve robustness in all cases. The refinement was obtained based on the mathematical analysis of the formulation of these algorithms for the continuous counterpart of the problem of interest. The resulting coupled solution methods were successfully applied to the multidisciplinary thermal analysis of a model of the HI-SHOT configuration . They have achieved the desired robustness and speed .
