Automotive designers and engineers routinely use automotive simulation to better understand a vehicle’s performance in order to go to market faster; find issues earlier; and leverage virtual prototypes to save time and resources. Using simulation tools that are cost effective, scalable, and accurate are paramount to maximizing their value. This webinar will discuss ELEMENTS, an automotive simulation platform back by years automotive industry use, cutting edge CFD meshing and algorithm development, and extensive wind tunnel validation. Attendees will be provided an introduction to the software’s capability related to external aerodynamics evaluation and performing higher-fidelity aero-thermal simulations for complex automotive cases.
Aerodynamicists who perform external aerodynamics simulations and want to streamline the CFD analysis process.
Aero-CFD Engineers who want to apply proven best-practices to their own CFD simulations and ensure consistency between team members.
Aero-Thermal Engineers who want to couple thermal modelling software (e.g. TAITherm) into their external aero simulations for higher-fidelity thermal management evaluation in “real-world” scenarios.
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.
