AG/CFD (Actual Geometry) Analysis performed by Stallion 3D with HIST for #SimulationFriday.
Stallion 3D took just seconds (with no need for pre-processing) to automatically import, grid and begin the compressible Navier-Stokes analysis of the water vapor, ice particles and dust streaming past the Rosetta orbiter in the wake of Comet 67-P’s.

Analysis for the arbitrary geometries was performed on a on an HP Pavillion Laptop (Quad-Core) for a total of 4 hours.
