CFD on Quantum Computers 

QubitSolve will develop a minimum viable product by 2027 to use quantum computers for computational fluid dynamics simulations for Aerospace & Defense and Automotive industry engineers.

QubitSolve developed a quantum algorithm to solve the partial differential equations, Navier-Stokes equations. The green line demonstrates the potential scaling of our algorithm, while the gold line represents the scaling of the classical algorithm. Due to the difference in scaling, the quantum algorithm will surpass the classical algorithm beyond a crossover point, making it possible to run CFD simulations that are currently too slow or impossible. QubitSolve is working on estimating the crossover point.

CFD simulations of unprecedented speed and accuracy

Various industries utilize CFD to analyze, optimize, and verify the performance of their designs, which helps reduce the need to build and test physical prototypes. The global market for CFD software is growing at a rate of 8.2% annually and is estimated to be worth $3.4 billion by 2027. However, classical computers face limitations that make accurate CFD simulations too expensive or impossible for some industrial applications. QubitSolve believes that quantum computers can potentially overcome this limitation. In a project funded by the National Science Foundation, QubitSolve has developed a CFD software prototype and is currently conducting tests on quantum computers.
