CFD Images Yas Marina 2019

The CFD images from Abu Dhabi show streamlines trough the cooling system. Lately there have been discussions about the cooling air negatively affecting the rear wing performance. The teams take very different approaches to deal with this. JJR clearly takes the most unconventional approach. CAEdevice and OKRacing appear to have copied each other, leading the […]

CFD Images COTA 2019

The CFD images from Austin show streamlines front wing endplates. The teams follow pretty different approaches with some deflecting the air beside the car and others on top:

CFD Images Suzuka 2019

The CFD images from Suzuka show streamlines close to the barge boards. The teams follow pretty different approaches with this important part, some even omit it entirely:

CFD Images Singapore 2019

The CFD images from Singapore reveal a bit about the cars. Larger vortices at the rear wing indicate more rear downforce, possible showing that balancing issues have been fixed, meaning the front wing can also work harder. Will the car with the largest rear wing vortex win the race?

Locating holes in the geometry for OpenFOAM CFD simulations

When working with CFD simulations, for example with OpenFOAM, mesh can leak through the stl geometries. In this short post we will find out how to find holes in the geometry through which snappyHexMesh can leak. On complex geometries it can be very difficult to find these kind of holes and gaps just trying to […]
