Hi everybody!
I am picking up ConnClark's post from the 'Car aerodynamics' thread:

Move over Ahmed. There's a new reference in town. Its called DrivAer

more discussion about the models
http://www.aer.mw.tum.de/en/research...otive/drivaer/
even more discussion with an email to request the models in IGES or STEP format.

Let the openFoam case files begin to flow
I know that some work has been done already with OF and the DrivAer car model. However, I am just at the very beginning to simulate (steady-state and transient) the flow around the DrivAer model...

I think its good to have one thread specifically related to the DrivAer model, which in my opinion, will be the next standard benchmark test for external car aerodynamic simulation. I am happy to share my experience, questions etc here.

Cheers,
Florian
