Mesh Generation And CFD For A Drone’s Coaxial Rotor

Our Cadence Channel Partner in Scandinavia, neptech, shares a case study investigating the interaction of a coaxial rotor system and how to optimize its efficiency. Coaxial rotor systems are appealing for multirotor drones, as they increase thrust without increasing the vehicle’s footprint. However, the thrust of a coaxial rotor system is reduced compared to having the rotors in line. It... » read more

What Is Intern Reading Club?

As the summer winds down, interns are busy completing their assigned projects and preparing their end of summer presentations.
