Better Designs for Supersonic Business Jets

Learn how Ansys is helping the A&D industry prepare a new chapter in supersonic commercial aircraft design. This presentation summarizes external aero nearfield sonic boom prediction on the NASA X-59 geometry as presented at the AIAA Sonic Boom workshop. We also discuss the Ansys supersonic panel flutter capability. Comparisons to NASA wind tunnel data are included.

The NASA X-59 QueSST (Quiet Supersonic Transport) is undergoing final assembly right now. Flights in 2021 and 2022 are expected to demonstrate that advanced shaping of aircraft can reduce the supersonic boom to negligible levels. Join us and gain insight on how advances in simulation are enabling a new era in civilian flight.
