#2: eVTOL Aerodynamic Design through Digitalization
Play • 15 min

There’s a huge innovation wave sweeping through our industry.

We’re seeing the emergence of new propulsion techniques (including green energy alternatives), supersonic air travel and the fast-emerging market of urban air mobility vehicles. Knowing the latest technologies available, and solutions to address both innovation and growing complexity, are keys to success and fast entry into market. 

Today in this second episode of a five-part series, “eVTOL Aerodynamic Design through Digitalization” we’ll be discussing the aerodynamic design of eVTOL vehicles and the associated elements that impact performance and efficiency. No question, eVTOLs are some of the coolest looking things out there, but do you use tiltrotors? …Tiltwings? …Or both? These types of decisions play heavily in the role of aerodynamic design.

I am your host, Scott Salzwedel, and for this discussion, I am joined by two industry leaders. Dale Tutt, Vice President of Aerospace & Defense at Siemens Digital Industries Software and Durrell Rittenberg, the Director of A&D for Simcenter at Siemens Digital Industries Software. 

Tune in to the latest episode of Talking Aerospace Today and hear how digitalization is helping companies who design, build and manufacture eVTOL vehicles compete more effectively, innovate faster with far less risk. 

In this episode, you will learn:

  • What makes eVTOL aircraft so unique? (02:48)
  • The challenges with eVTOL aerodynamics. (04:27)
  • The meaning of Computational Fluid Dynamics and why it's important to eVTOL aerodynamic design. (05:50)
  • How Siemens is helping customers achieve eVTOL certification. (07:56)
  • The important role of the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio. (10:25)
  • How digital thread technology helps companies innovate faster. (12:35)
