Vehicle aerodynamic simulation can be a labor intensive process. It requires users to manage complex geometric surfaces, mesh intricate models, set hundreds of boundary conditions, execute many cases on HPC, and extract data for post-processing. All while simultaneously considering accuracy and reproducibility. ELEMENTS is an automotive simulation framework to enable engineers to more quickly and accurately perform aero simulation tasks.
As part of our Learn by Example Webinar series, this session will provide a practical introduction to ELEMENTS and walk through the process of setting up an external aerodynamics simulation to evaluate a vehicle design.
Aero-CFD Engineers who want to apply proven best-practices to their own CFD simulations and ensure consistency between team members.
Engineering Managers who are interested in reducing license costs by using simulation tools that scale-up (no parallel licenses) and scale-out (unlimited parallel jobs) to achieve more with your resources.
Dan is a Sr. CFD Engineer and manager, holding a PhD from Washington University in Energy, Environmental, and Chemical Engineering. He is a Reaction Engineer by training and an expert in turbulent flows in complex geometries. Dan has a history of supporting automotive customers through software deployment on HPC, customizing ELEMENTS aero templates, and training teams of engineers and managers to maximize the value of ENGYS products in a short period of time. His roles at ENGYS since 2012 include application engineer, support engineer, trainer, developer, product tester, and consultant across various industry sectors including automotive, energy, marine, and more.
