Exploiting aero-thermal simulation methods in vehicle aerodynamic development

On Demand video coming soon

Jaguar Land Rover present the use of aero-thermal simulation.

An example of vehicle aerodynamics and surface contamination simulation that helps improve performance early in the design cycle.

As vehicle manufacturers seek continuous improvement in their development processes, aerodynamics development needs to respond by breaking down the traditional silos of physical test and numerical simulation, along with the classic attribute structure of aerodynamics, surface contamination and thermal management.

This presentation works through those themes by using recent process improvements at Jaguar Land Rover. It lays out the dynamic relationship between test and simulation and then demonstrates an efficient aerodynamics simulation scheme, exploring its integration with both thermal management and surface contamination.

The interplay of accuracy, design maturity and process velocity within this scheme is also illustrated by reference to recent vehicle development projects.

Finally, opportunities for future development and further integration of related attributes are discussed.
