Description/Abstract

An overview is given of the powerful geometry (solid model) creation program Adaptflexi. A detailed user guide and a number of worked examples are given to illustrate how the code can be used as part of a design investigation for realistic marine or aerospace vehicles. The software can either be run interactively or using previously created scripts that allow multiple parametric variations of the specified problem. A range of input format and output format allows straightforward coupling to other CAD/ship lines software and to analysis using CFD or FEA. Useful features include: the ability to generate ab initio parametric definitions of complex shapes; creation of multiple object problems; definition of multiple phase domain problems; independent manipulation of sub assemblies of components; systematic control of surface and volume mesh creation process; and visualisation tools for assessing mesh quality and flow solutions. The report describes all the available functionality as well as giving worked examples for a number of typical marine and aerospace applications.
