The rise of electric vehicles has led to a new phenomenon and range anxiety appears to stand out as one of the most critical. Electric vehicles tend to have a shorter drive range than conventional powertrain, and charging takes longer than filling up with gas.
For vehicle speeds over 40MPH, wind resistance starts to play a major role as a cause for energy consumption.
As a consequence, engineering vehicles with low drag can significantly extend the drive range for highway traffic.
Tool that will be covered:
This webinar focuses on achieving low drag vehicles using computational fluid dynamics (CFD).
- Reduce the energy consumption of the vehicle by reducing drag.
- Run design exploration to explore hundreds of variants in a week, thus allowing reduced design time
We Present how to use CFD simulation to explore design variants and their impact on the drag performance of the vehicle.
Using Multidisciplinary design optimization of HEEDS we can find the best performing design with the lowest drag co-efficient to enhance the efficiency of the vehicle for highway traffic.
Who Should Attend?
It is for any Industry and the following can attend:
- CFD Engineers
- EV Engineering Teams
- Optimization Engineers
Post the session, the participants will be able to:
Explore design variants and their impact on aerodynamics performance, and how it accelerates the design cycle to meet or beat the design requirements.
