Application: The World Solar Challenge - Aerodynamic Simulation of Rotating Wheels in a Solar Car
Posted Sun January 12, 2020 @02:28PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Application Every 2 years competitors from around the world set out on a grueling race across the Australian outback: the World Solar Challenge.

The competing solar-powered cars are built by some of the brightest young minds on the planet. Student teams from all over the world, push the limits of technological innovation by engineering and building a vehicle with their own hands, powered only by the sun. The competition is designed to promote research on solar-powered cars.

Survey Launched on Mesh Types and Sizes Used for CFD
Posted Mon December 30, 2019 @11:38AM
Print version Email story Tweet story
News Pointwise has launched a survey of the CFD market to assess the relative popularity of mesh types and sizes with a goal of assessing where the industry is headed in terms of flow solver and meshing technology.

"I remember in the 1980s that CFD meshes were virtually all multi-block, structured hexahedra," said John Chawner, Pointwise’s president. "Today, a wide variety of mesh types, each with their own relative advantages, serves an even wider variety of flow solver technology. This survey is an attempt to discover where the technology is headed and seek any points of convergence."

Application Renault evaluates the efficiency of their turbo-compressors through CFD analysis with NUMECA.

Pollution and fuel consumption are the most important features of thermal engines that must be drastically improved in the coming years. In order to achieve this, all consuming parts of cars are being meticulously analyzed to try and decrease losses to the maximum through design improvements, while taking into account inherent negative effects such as condensation issues for the compressor.

Application: Formula 1 works with AWS to Develop Next Generation Race Car
Posted Mon December 02, 2019 @08:39PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Application Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS), an Amazon.com company, and Formula One Group (Formula 1) have completed a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) project to simulate the aerodynamics of cars while racing, carrying out detailed simulations that have resulted in the car design for the 2021 racing season.

The CFD project used over 1,150 compute cores to run detailed simulations comprising of over 550 million data points that model the impact of one car’s aerodynamic wake on another.
