Modeling Vehicle Aerodynamics and Vehicle Thermal Management (VTM)
This free online webinar will highlight the ways in which numerical simulation can be used to improve vehicle aerodynamics and thermal management. Guest Speaker Robert Lietz, CFD Technical Expert at Ford Aerodynamics will discuss how the availability of simulation data early in the design process can guide descision-making and minimize engineering risk, by inspiring greater confidence in the product.

Description:

Modeling Vehicle Aerodynamics and Vehicle Thermal Management (VTM) - Now more then ever vehicle manufacturers are under constant consumer driven pressure to produce innovative designs that are aesthetically appealing, environmentally friendly (in terms of fuel efficiency and emissions) and are cost effective. Manufacturers from the automotive, trucking, heavy equipment and even the defense industry all are increasingly relying on vehicle simulation to not only improve product performance, but also to reduce time-to-market and prototyping costs. This free online webinar will highlight the ways in which numerical simulation can be used to improve vehicle aerodynamics and thermal management. Ford Motor Company's aerodynamics specialist will discuss how the availability of simulation data early in the design process can guide decision-making and minimize engineering risk, by inspiring greater confidence in the product. Demonstrations will show the process for setting up a full three-dimensional analysis, and techniques for evaluating and optimizing particular components in a design before building and testing prototypes. Everyone who attends receives access to the automotive resource center and the opportunity to participate in a free software trial program.
