Optimal fluid flow performance is becoming increasingly important for the design of automobiles and automotive components. ENGYS combined high-quality unstructured mesh generation for computational fluid dynamics (CFD) from Pointwise with Helyx Adjoint to provide efficient and effective topology optimization of automotive components. The high-quality unstructured meshing in Pointwise was key to enabling the required stability of the CFD solutions as an integral part of the fully automated performance-driven design process. This case study illustrates the approach and its application to two automotive components for performance-driven design optimization to meet target performance objectives. |
