When simple models are too simple, an analysis with Linflux gives you the power to study realistic, 3-D flows and blade geometries. Compared with V072 and TFaNS, Linflux requires significantly more computational resources since it models much more of the physics involved. Linflux predicts rotor/stator tone noise and, like all the software developed by the NASA Glenn Acoustics Branch, has been rigorously validated against experimental data.
