Mesh adaption for vehicle aerodynamics simulation

All major automotive OEMs require fast and reliable processes  for virtual simulation in order to steer a design process that proceeds at an increasingly tight pace.

Skoda external aerodynamic CFD workflow

As any other automotive company, Skoda solves the problem of an aerodynamic drag, lift and cooling mass flow optimization during a new car development process.

Multiphase simulation of external water management

One development goal of the Mercedes-Benz aerodynamic department is to achieve a favorable external water management in order to increase both safety and comfort during heavy rain conditions. In the last years the importance and application of CFD for the reduction of aerodynamic drag and aero-acoustic noise is growing strongly. Increasing computational power and maturity of physical models lead to the attempt to use CFD also for the prediction of vehicle soiling instead of pure wind tunnel testing.
