June 18, 2024 at 03:00 PM Coordinated Universal Time


Corvette Aerodynamics CFD

In the relentless pursuit of excellence, automotive manufacturers are continuously refining their development processes to achieve greater efficiency and innovation. Within this landscape, the optimization of aerodynamics and thermal management stands as a pillar, heavily reliant on cutting-edge computational fluid dynamics (CFD) tools and methodologies.

Join us as we dig into the world of CFD, where the convergence of new general-purpose computing on graphics processing units (GPGPU) hardware and more efficient workflow help designers earlier in the design cycle. Discover how the delicate balance between simulation accuracy and the strategic allocation of computational resources and financial investments is core to designing robust CFD workflows.

This webinar will showcase an advanced, hardware-agnostic platform engineered to tackle the complexities of modern vehicle development. Our solution offers scalability and versatility, facilitating the rapid generation of highly accurate aerodynamic and thermal simulations within compressed timeframes, all while ensuring repeatability and resilience across diverse computing architectures.
