With the experimental data from a road test with a full-size tractor-trailer configuration,
I am to recreate the experiment within STAR-CCM+ and compare the solution to the given data. For realistic conditions the simulation will include the rotation of the tires, the relative translation of the road and a detailed volume mesh, which all will be implemented directly via STAR_CCM+.
