Student Rocket Scientists Use Flownex to Model Propellant Flow, Chamber Cooling, and High-Pressure Gas Feed in Their Experimental Liquid Fuel Rocket Engines

Rockets are just cool. Well-designed rockets made by students, now that is super-cool.

Because we are mostly engineers, and people who love engineering, we have a thing here at PADT for anything that has to do with rockets. One of the fringe benefits of selling Ansys and Flownex simulation software as well as Stratasys and EOS 3D Printers is that many of our customers are designing rockets and/or rocket engines.

Launch Canada Rocket Engine Test

So when Launch Canada Rocketry Association (LCRA) was interested in partnering with PADT and Flownex to deliver state-of-the-art simulation to the student teams who are building liquid fuel rockets for their latest rocket contest, we jumped at the opportunity.

And that is why we are officially announcing the three-way partnership between Launch Canada, Flownex, and PADT. You can read about the details in the process release:

If you are curious about how to use the Flownex 1-D thermal fluid simulation system to model rocket engines, check out this blog post on how to model the classic RL-10 rocket engine.

And, if you have any questions about how you can leverage the power of Flownex for your applications, contact us, and one of our engineers will be more than happy to show you around one of our favorite software tools.
