OpenRoad™: A VPD-Series Ground Transportation Add-on for STAR-CCM+

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

VPD', or Virtual Product Development, will certainly be more and more pervasive in the future of engineering. By reducing the number of physical prototypes, not only is there significant savings for testing and wind tunnel time, but turnaround time from concept to final design can be reduced by running hundreds, or even thousands of virtual product tests to discover trends and responses of your product that can be missed with the relatively slow pace and high costs of physical tests. OpenRoad™ demonstrates that full ground vehicle aerodynamics, thermal under hoods, and cooling package evaluations can be performed en mass to achieve the amount of information needed to make design decisions with CFD. OpenRoad™ will be demonstrated and key secrets to unlocking its potential will be explained.
