Description

Downforce CFD Simulation Best Practices & Composites Cost-Reduction

Brief overview of Siemens & Mentor automotive engineering software packages & how to get no-cost software, no-cost online training & tech support to power your team's success. Carbon Composite Cost & Labor Saving Techniques. Want to save up to 40% of your carbon fiber costs and save fabrication time? To be competitive at the highest level, your car needs weight-saving carbon composite for your downforce package and chassis. Instead of finding manufacturing flaws after costly fabrication, use a unique fabrication-simulator to find and fix flaws at design time, to save precious $ cost and labor with real-life examples from a leading FSAE team. Also learn about integration with Finite Element Analysis (FEA) for strength optimization as well as CNC ply-cutters. Illustrated with Fibersim software. Best practices for aerodynamics downforce design with CFD simulation. Learn how to be more efficient at improving aero designs, increase accuracy. Enable more experiments to optimize downforce versus drag and decrease lap times. Learn how STAR-CCM+ can help you speed through typical struggles associated with CFD (cleaning/swapping CAD, meshing, etc) so you can test more designs. This includes an overview of the software and available online training content, along with demonstrations.

Followed by Q&A and grant application forms how-to.

Presenters: Leigh Anderson, Business Development Manager Student Competitions Worldwide and Chris Penny, Academic Competitions Program Manager - N.America & CFD Instructor
