Computational Fluid Dynamics at ISE

ISE are experts in the field of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and wave propagation analysis. We utilize, and have developed numerous predictive computer codes to help our clients understand the effects and impacts from subsonic, transonic, and supersonic flows associated with acoustic wave propagation, aerodynamic flow, rotor and fan wash, vortex shedding, and high pressure sources.

Our CFD capabilities include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Predictive modeling strategies.
  • Advanced acoustical propagation analysis.
  • Fluid-structure interaction studies including added-mass effects.
  • Dynamic vortex flutter and instability analysis.
  • Predictive model development for client-specific needs.
  • Web interactive CFD acoustical models for clients.

Featured Video Clip

A video taken by ISE showing an excavation blast at the OMWD dam site in 2001. 

Due to the close proximity of the blast to sensitive infrastructure, ISE set up a remote monitoring and recording station at the location shown in the video. The results are quite spectacular, if not a little dusty...
