Welcome to the World of Fast Morphing!

This site is dedicated to the product RBF Morph, an integrated system for morphing and shape optimization tailored for the CFD solver ANSYS Fluent.

RBF Morph is a unique morpher that combines a very accurate control of the geometrical parameters with an extremely fast mesh deformation, fully integrated in the CFD solving process. RBF Morph is the meeting point between state-of-the-art scientific research and top-level industrial needs.

Most important industrial requirements, like process integration, mesh-independent solution, parallelism, large models and arbitrary mesh element type management, are so fulfil by RBF Morph. The final goal of RBF Morph is to perform parametric studies of component shapes and positions typical of the fluid-dynamic design like multi-configuration studies, sensitivity studies, design developments, DOE (Design Of Experiment) and shape optimization. Thanks to the ANSYS partnership this product is now available for FLUENT users as an add-on.


RBF Morph at 4th Aircraft Structural Design Conference

RBF Morph will participate to 4th Aircraft Structural Design Conference taking place at Queen's University Belfast in Northern Ireland between 7th and 9th October 2014. This conference will address the challenges facing the designers of the next generation aircraft, and papers will cover current research focused on the design and manufacture of future civil and military air-vehicle structures, both manned and uninhabited.

RBF Morph will present a work titled: "Store Separation: Theoretical Investigation of Wing Aeroelastic Response" dealing with a novel approach to the study of Store Separation, based on the use of the FSI module of RBF Morph. Such a module was used to perform two different FSI analyses: an aeroelastic steady analysis to determine the condition of elastic equilibrium of the wing in the presence of the store and, starting from this, an unsteady analysis to get the transient aeroelastic response of the wing due to the release of the underwing body.

We guess this work opens interesting scenarios for future applications in the field of FSI problems both military and civilian.

Hope to see you in Belfast!



RBF Morph at Applied Aerodynamics Conference 2014

RBF Morph will have a speech at Advanced Aero Concepts, Design and Operations Applied Aerodynamics Conference 2014 that will be take place as from 22nd to 24th of July at the University of Bristol (UK), Faculty of Engineering. This biennial conference is organized by the Royal Aeronautical Society with the aim to present and discuss the aspects of advanced aero concepts, design and operations, covering both research and application, with particular emphasis for cost effective and environmentally sustainable technologies and solutions.

On Thursday 24th, RBF Morph team will be presenting "An Efficient Approach to Simulating Ice Accretion on 2D and 3D Airfoil". In this session, how mesh morphing can be effectively used as a tool for updating CFD models of wings accounting for the presence of complex shapes originated during ice accretion will be shown.

We really hope to meet you in Bristol!
