Modern Formula race teams are using CFD to maximize the aerodynamic performance of their racing cars.To obtain an optimal design with the best balance of mechanical components, performance, and aerodynamic efficiencies, engineers are evaluating potential designs through high fidelity CFD calculations. The goal of this analysis is to identify local flow-features in the context of desired performance for drag and balanced downforce.
Teams like Renault Tatuus are translating Direct CFD tools into reduced lap times on the race track.
Formula teams work in a fast-moving design environment and need to simplify workflows, reduce analysis time, and make quicker comparisons. Computational methods with a direct connection to CAD programs are one way to speed iterations throughout the design cycle. Teams like Renault Tatuus are translating these Direct CFD tools into reduced lap times on the race track.
This Webinar will discuss how immersed boundary technology in KARALIT CFD together with advanced post- processing in Tecplot 360 EX revolutionized the CFD analysis of a Formula Renault Tatuus 2000 race-car (courtesy of Tatuus Racing).
You will learn how to automate, simplify, and speed up multiple full-car simulations of unique design points. We will illustrate the process by evaluating car designs of:
And finally, we will present the assessment of performance parameters including drag, lift, and detailed analysis of the main flow field.
