Wiper HSQ performance for passenger cars using CFD

At high vehicle speeds, the wiper assembly can be lifted off from the windshield due to wiper aerodynamics thereby causing the underperformance of wiper function. In this paper, we have studied the lift-off behavior using a numerical approach. With this approach, the influence of wiper motion, sweep direction on wiper lift at different vehicle speeds was studied using a commercial CFD software ( STAR-CCM+®).
