CFD Computational fluid dynamics on RMH

See attachments for some Quick CFD work I did on RMH. This could be a easy way to test out modifications without building a prototype. A limitation I have with this tool is I have to estimate the volume flow rate after the initial combustion and I can't simulate the added gasses from the secondary combustion in the vorticities.
