BMWBLOG has posted BMW M4 DTM: a detailed look at computational fluid dynamics describing the use of CFD in the development of BMW's entry in the Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters (DTM) touring car series.
When the six new BMW M4 DTMs take their place on the grid for the DTM season-opener on 6th May 2017, it will mark the temporary end of a long and intense period of development. A considerable part of this development took place with the aid of computer simulations.
During the creation of a new race car, the smallest details can bring about a decisive advantage in the battle for those fractions of a second on the circuit. It is no wonder that the BMW Motorsport engineers leave nothing to chance. That is why the CFD flow calculations are of such special importance. The development of digitalisation has changed racing car design. Engineers can identify the most promising solutions for specific components without leaving the computer.
