Improve performance, efficiency, and range with simulation

Electric aircraft are not necessarily more challenging than conventional flight, but the difficulties involved are different. Fuel systems are no longer a concern, but battery weight is far more critical. eVTOL craft is typically quieter than its fuel-burning counterparts. Still, it is also hoped to operate regularly in built-up areas, meaning that community noise issues are very different in character.


Historically, the A&D industry relied strongly on physical testing, empirical models based on conventional configurations, and other low-fidelity simulation methods. Today eVTOL designs are very unconventional, and empirical models and low-fidelity methods are failing to predict the behavior of such a vehicle. Full vehicle high-fidelity solutions accounting for real-world effects such as ingested turbulence and aero-elasticity are needed as soon as the preliminary design phase to avoid the classic first flight re-design and be confident during the certification process.
