SIMCENTER STAR-CCM+ expedites the development of new aerodynamics technologies through CFD simulations and automation

There are several issues concerning electric vehicle design, one being aerodynamics. Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) are not only influenced by their customers' driving range requirements but are also confined to regulations and reporting of fuel consumption and predicted drag values (deltas) in novel designs.

Simcenter STAR-CCM+ software assists with creating a high-fidelity, comprehensive digital twin, which helps to streamline a precise design process by automating procedures and encouraging design exploration while managing complex geometry. Every step, from geometry specification through meshing and solution to postprocessing, allows fast evaluation of design modifications on aerodynamic performance.

Simcenter STAR-CCM+ in aerodynamics has benefits beyond official reporting and saving time and money.

With its advanced modeling approaches, Simcenter STAR-CCM+'s automated meshing pipeline substantially decreases preprocessing time to achieve precise, consistent, and reliable simulation results. Implementing this solution will:

  • reduce engineering time using automation

  • generate thousands-part geometries with surface wrapping and meshing

  • boost throughput with accurate and fast steady-state simulations

  • gather thorough design knowledge based on the surface sensitivity of drag
