For many years the Ahmed Body and the SAE Body have been used as the benchmarks for automotive aerodynamics. There are very few other commonly available automotive test cases - though recent and rapid advances in high performance computing are transforming the applicability of high fidelity simulation.
A new benchmark is now available called DrivAer, produced by Technische Universitat Munchen. This is a far more complex geometry than has been considered previously, and is more representative of a real car. In order to use this test case geometry, work is required before some of the standard meshing tools can be applied, which has been undertaken by CFMS and partners, and will be made available to workshop attendees.
The DrivAer Workshop event is focused on the automotive sector and targeted towards organisations who would like to;
● Assess their own tools and gain access to the DrivAer geometry that has been de-featured for CFD
● Access the meshes that have already been generated by CFMS for this test case in order to validate their own methods
● Learn more about the latest techniques and advances for meshing tools
Workshop attendees will hear about the work that CFMS and partners have undertaken on the test case, and includes an open invitation to access the latest test results (post the workshop), including geometry, meshes and results for comparison. The event will also discuss the merits of open collaboration and how to progress the industry beyond the current methodologies to drive best practice forward.

We look forward to seeing you at the event.
