    • Europe's aerospace industry looking confident
      Apart from Airbus's highly visible presence in defense and commercial aircraft, Europe also has successful capabilities in helicopters, business jets, and aero engines, and in all these areas their global market share is growing.
    • Comparing blade-element momentum modeling to 3-D CFD
      Many small unmanned aerial vehicles (SUAVs) are driven by small scale, fixed blade propellers, and the flow produced by the propeller can have a significant impact on the aerodynamics of the SUAV itself.
