Flight Simulator

Flight simulators are used extensively in flight training. A true simulator requires 3D fluid-structure interaction based on real-time computing of turbulent solutions of Navier-Stokes equations for the flow of air around the airplane coupled with Navier’s elasticity equations for the airplane structure. Unicorn offers a platform for realizing such a simulator, which serves as a main challenge for computational aerodynamic, see The Secret of Flight 1.17.
