Parachutes – Ram-air Gliding

Vorticity staff have been involved in ram-air parachute design and analysis over three decades and wrote one of the standard reference texts on the subject.

Simulation of a Ram-air gliding parachute to achieve accurate landing on Mars

Vorticity’s proprietary multibody simulation code has all the necessary capability to simulate a ram-air parachute related mission. Vorticity also has capability in Computational Fluid Dynamics and Fluid Structure Interaction simulation necessary to develop aerodynamic databases of simulated objects.
