Aerodynamic Design and Analysis – Griffon’s past performance in aircraft design has allowed us to develop tools and a network of specialist and experts to optimize our designs. Our capability spans the range from linear theory methods to Reynolds Averaged Navier-Stokes solvers. Griffon offers computational analysis and design of configurations ranging from 2-D airfoils to fan and rotor blades to complete configuration analysis. The linear theory tools are particularly well suited for the preliminary design environment, providing rapid turn-around of analyses of aircraft. Our use of modern design tools allows us to export solid models and work virtually with Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) experts from around the country. These aerodynamic analysis tools are central part of establishing keeping designs cost effective and removing the limitations and high cost of wind tunnel testing eliminating the inherent inconsistency, and correction factors. CFD allows us to analyze fluid flow problems in detail, at the earliest stages in the design cycle for less money and lower risk.
