Optimization in a Car Design - CFD and Multibody applications
The developed project has demonstrated the applicability of optimization procedures in the context of automotive industry by using CFD for the aerodynamics solver. The integration of the aerodynamic optimization in the design phase allows engineers to interact with the other design groups without excessive delays. In this way, it becomes possible to search for solutions that do not negatively affect car style or performance, while providing a high degree of efﬁciency and safety. The reduction of industrial costs is signiﬁcant: in principle it is no longer needed to build many different models, to be subject to wind tunnel measurements: it is sufﬁcient to test the ﬁnal optimized ones.
