Aerodynamics Simulation for Design

External aerodynamics simulation plays an important role in modern automotive design. Vehicle fuel economy, stability, engine cooling, interior cabin noise and windshield-wiper performance are all influenced by aerodynamic forces.  For decades, automakers around the world have relied upon time-consuming wind … Read More

Computational Fluid Dynamics FAQs – Part 2

As a follow up to last week’s video blog, my colleague Dr. Farzin Shakib continues the discussion around computational fluid dynamics, today addressing the conservation of mass, energy and momentum in finite element-based CFD solvers.
