Automotive Aerodynamics White Paper

Ahmed Body Mesh

From a field of candidates, Envenio selected an engineer to run a CFD simulation using three commercial software packages. These included StarCCM, Fluent and EXN/Aero. While the engineer was required to be knowledgeable in Fluent and StarCCM, experience with EXN/Aero was not required and the engineer was provided training from Envenio in this regard.


The engineer was required to run a ~30 million element finite volume simulation; a CGNS mesh file was provided to them that would work for all three solvers. Upon completion of the simulations, the engineer prepared a short report that described the simulation results in terms of performance and accuracy. Specific metrics are listed in the ‘outcomes’ section.
