COMPUTATIONAL FLUID DYNAMICS
CFD (Computational fluid dynamics) plays a key role into the design process of a new car.
Designers can simulate airflow around the car to aid downforce and improve efficiency.
At the same time brake cooling, refueling, oil sloshing and engine performance are optimised.
Tatuus since 2004 has a sophisticated datacenter based on High Performance Computers in cluster
architecture and Linux OS to perform calculations with great accuracy.
In the early phases of the project it's possible to test a larger number of variants and
complex models compared to WT, saving time and money.
Once the virtual models are tested, reduced number of WT scaled models are ready to run.
CFD and WT work complement each other to develop new solutions in the shorter time.
