SW Flow Simulation and historical figures in aeronautics

Blog Post created by Joe Galliera Employee on Oct 24, 2009
Since the movie on Amelia Earhart started this past weekend, it reminded me of another historical figure in aeronautics, Henri CoandăThe point of this post: SW Flow Simulation supports the Coandă effect.

The Coandă effect is the tendency of a fluid jet to stay attached to an adjacent curved surface that is very well shaped.  The principle was named after Romanian Henri Coandă, who was the first to recognize the practical application of the  phenomenon in aircraft development.
