I am a high school student that wants to use CFD for a science fair project. I am also an aspiring aerospace engineer but very new to computational fluid dynamics. For my science fair project, I have a few aircraft design ideas that will reduce the angle of a shock wave. I want to use CFD to observe or measure this effect.
That being said, do you know how I can use SimScale to model airflow around an aircraft. I’ve played with the system but I am not sure how to do speeds above Mach 1. Is it even possible to supersonic simulations with SimScale? If so, would you be willing to give a relatively rudimentary tutorial? Additionally, how can I use CFD to visualize the formation of a shockwave? Are there any measurement outputs that will help me to observe or approximate the sound levels from different distances from the aircraft?
