CFD Method for Aircraft Skid Performance Including Wear and Heat Transfer 2008-01-2249

A CFD method for predicting wear and heat transfer for an aircraft skid is described. It uses a finite volume method with a moving grid to account for wear. Therefore the skid material flows through the grid. The interface between the skid and runway is modeled empirically and is based on test data. A calculation for a simple skid is presented. The code is written in Mathematica which runs quickly and therefore is useful for experimenting with physical models and conducting trade studies.
