PROJECTS

TotalSim’s client list includes OE automotive and truck manufacturers, racing teams, aerospace design, and high-performance industrial clients


Multi-vehicle Draft Performance

This Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Flow Visualization of Two Ford Fusion NASCAR Sprint Cup cars was computed at OH-TECH’s Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) by TotalSim USA.
The transient solution was run to evaluate the effect of two car drafting. Models used with the permission and at the courtesy of Ford Racing.

This CFD solution was computed using the opensource CFD solver OpenFOAM(r) and rendered using the opensource Blender software – all at Ohio Supercomputer Center and was display on the large screen during plenary session at SC13 in Denver CO

DRAG REDUCTION ADDONS

This Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Flow Visualization of Semi Truck and Trailer was computed at OH-TECH’s Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) by TotalSim USA. The “Truck Add-on Predictor” (TAP) is a project led by OSC and funded via NCMS as part of DOE’s Light Automotive Materials Project (LAMP). TAP will allow end users to test their drag reduction add-on’s in a detailed CFD model via a simple web portal accessed though NIMBIS Services.

This CFD solution was computed using the opensource CFD solver OpenFOAM and rendered using the opensource Blender software – all at OSC.

 

Peloton Drafting Technique

In 2015 TotalSim used CFD to model the drafting behavior of a group of cyclists known as a ‘Peloton’. This group behavior helps reduce drag and reduces the energy necessary to maintain competitive speeds. The video was rendered using TotalSim’s automatic post-processing and Blender.
