Exploiting aero-thermal simulation methods in vehicle aerodynamic development
Stricter emission limits and new test procedures put the automotive and transportation industry under a lot of pressure. The Worldwide harmonized Light vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP) introduced a new driving cycle (WLTC), resulting in a higher average and maximum velocity during testing. For this reason, the importance of aerodynamics has increased. Simulation provides a way to improve aerodynamics earlier in the design cycle, allowing vehicle manufacturers to enhance aerodynamic performance before the first physical prototype.
In this webinar, we have a guest speaker from Jaguar Land Rover who will discuss using aerodynamic simulation to help build quality vehicles. Our guest speaker will look at how they use the right level of fidelity to help the efficiency have the most significant impact on design.
What will you learn in this webinar?
- Introduction to aerodynamic simulation
- Efficient aerodynamics simulation strategies

Frederick Ross:Director, Simcenter solutions for Automotive and Transportation, Siemens Digital Industries Software
Frederick started with CD-Adapco in 1989, which was acquired in 2016 by Siemens, and has extensive experience working with customers on applications such as vehicle heat protection, aerodynamics, and passenger thermal comfort. Frederick has been directly involved in development processes enabling automation of virtual vehicle simulation from CAD to results. Frederick is currently working with the Simcenter STAR-CCM+ product management team to help customers streamline their in-house processes.
Dr. Nick Simmonds:SME Aero/Thermal CFD Methods, Jaguar Land Rover
Nick completed his PhD in the application of CFD to the aerodynamic and thermal efficiency of automotive cooling systems in 2017 (Cranfield University, UK) and then joined Jaguar Land Rover. Nick is a CFD Subject Matter Expert with vehicle aerodynamics development experience who is currently leading the development of aerodynamics, surface contamination and thermal management simulation solutions.
