Sponsored by Mentor Graphics

Remember that LEGO Aero Hawk from your seventh birthday? Remember how it did loops, flew upside down and even reached warp speed? In the imagination of a seven-year-old anything is possible. But being all grown-up, combined with harsh reality and a degree in engineering, you know that sadly everything isn’t. So you set out to apply your engineering knowledge to determine if there is even the slightest possibility of a LEGO Aero Hawk managing some form of flight. You dive into your vast engineering toolbox and pull out your traditional Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) tool.
