Paper Title:
Optimization for the Air-Pod Shape
  Abstract

in order to optimize the air-pod shape, this paper details work conducted using the commercial CFD software package ANSYS: Fluent to simulate the aerodynamic of air-pod. In our research, the results as followed: 1) In the benchmark, our comparative analysis of the flow over the NASA 0012 airfoil from the Experimental Data Base for Computer Program Assessment (AGARD-AR-138, 1979) implies that the ANSYS: Fluent software package numerical method simulates the airfoil viscous flow with the same accuracy as the wind-tunnel experiment. We can use it to finish our research. 2) We build the 3-D model to compute the aerodynamic of the air-pod. We choose the cylinder at first step. From the results we can see the pressure and wall shear concentrate at the side face of the cylinder. The pressure at the side faces is about twice than the direct side. Next step we will compute different models, such as spherical and drop-shaped, et al. then we can compare the pressure and wall shear field value for different models at different conditions. This work gives us best way to optimize the aerodynamic shape of air-pod.
