Print version Email story Tweet story
Application The Race Tech Magazine article Formula 1’s 2021 Car in the Wind Tunnel takes a look at early wind tunnel results from the 2021 car design.

The purpose of the test is to validate the large amount of CFD work conducted during research and development of the Formula 1 governing body's vision.

HONDA Testifies a Major Breakthrough in Meshing Speed with NUMECA’s AutoSeal and HEXPRESS™/Hybrid
Posted Mon July 29, 2019 @05:13PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Application I'm sure you have heard it before, "80% of the time spent on CFD simulation for aerodynamics is used just for preparing the set-up of the case". Typical challenges in the simulation preparation process are still: poor quality of the available CAD, resulting in dirty geometries containing holes and cavities, complex geometries, resulting in a large amount of manual input to create a quality mesh, and difficulty to quickly create design alternatives for iterative testing.

Several Leaps Forward for CFD Simulations of Hydrofoils
Posted Mon July 22, 2019 @11:02AM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Application While discussing with Xavier Guisnel from VPLP during the last marine session of the NUMECA User Meeting, the idea of revising the hydrofoil simulation standards appeared to be a necessity. He mentioned that "the desired lift force should be an input and not just an output of the simulation".

Balancing Meshing Time with Solution Accuracy
Posted Tue April 09, 2019 @10:56AM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Application In 1963, Craig Breedlove set the world land-speed record in the Spirit of America, a record that he would later reclaim several more times in the next two years. Fifty years later, Breedlove has decided that it is time to bring the title back to America. In a new team led by Breedlove, the Spirit of America is being revived with the goal of once again claiming a new world record for land-speed vehicles.

Historically, land-speed vehicles were shaped by rule of thumb aerodynamics. However in the 50 years since the first turbojet vehicle officially set a land-speed record, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) has matured to a point where it can be inexpensively used to help simulate performance characteristics on such vehicles.
