A project for the future is the combination of Comutational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) especially the Large Eddy Simulation (LES) with the Fast Multipole Boundary Element Method (FMBEM). The flow acoustics of a panthograph can be simulatied by this combination.
A flutter instability in water was observed on rotor blades. The instability leads to high noise levels. A simple tool for the rapid simuation was developed. The panel method was combined with the finite element model of the blade to estimate the critical velocity of the fluid.
