ARMET: An Engineering Education Program to Expedite Aircraft Geometry Creation and Meshing with Element Quality Feedback
A program known as ARMET (Automated useR-interfaced Multi-Software Educational Tool) that automates aircraft geometry creation, meshing, and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) pre-processing is described. Developed for use in United States Air Force Academy (USAFA) CFD classes, ARMET creates aircraft geometries by reading coordinate data from an internal USAFA Excel spreadsheet. Using Python as its main scripting language, the program creates SolidWorks curve files (.SLDCRV) and executes a SolidWorks VBA macro to create the geometry. ARMET then executes a Pointwise script to generate a volumetric ...
