Numerical flow simulation (CFD) is mainly used at the Institute of Jet Propulsion to investigate complex flow processes in turbomachinery components. Great importance is attributed to the mutual complementation of experimental measurement data and numerical simulations and the resulting synergy effects. Thus, experimental data can be used to validate numerical simulations. In turn, high-resolution flow simulations provide valuable additional information in flow regions that are difficult to access experimentally.
