US3D is an unstructured-grid, finite-volume CFD and state-of-the-art research and analysis tool. Developed through a collaboration of the University of Minnesota, NASA Ames and VirtusAero, US3D uses similar physics and methods as NASA Ames DPLR code, but with more flexibility.
STABL2D is the original STABL (Stability and Transition Analysis for hypersonic Boundary Layers). Developed at the University of Minnesota, STABL2D includes a 2D/Axisymmetric CFD solver, a Linear Stability Theory (LST) solver and a Parabolized Stability Equations (PSE) solver for the analysis of boundary layer stability and transition prediction in 2D or axisymmetric flows.
STABL3D is the latest generation of the STABL (Stability and Transition Analysis for hypersonic Boundary Layers) software. STABL3D provides a Linear Stability Theory (LST) solver for the analysis of boundary layer stability and transition prediction in fully three-dimensional flows as well as being able to analyze the more simple 2D and axisymmetric flows.
VirtusAero provides hands-on, in-person training on both US3D and STABL2D/STABL3D. Our customizable training can provide instruction for all levels of users, from basic to advanced. Training can be conducted on site at your facility, or hosted by VirtusAero in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Virtual training options are also available.
Standard training sessions are 16 hours. Topics covered may include:
VirtusAero offers consulting services for the United States aerospace community with a particular focus and expertise in hypersonics.
VirtusAero continually pursues new research and development opportunities and seeks to collaborate in the areas of aerospace engineering, computational fluid mechanics and hypersonic gas dynamics.
We independently and collaboratively work on research and development on software products and SBIR projects.
