Image Deltas

A run completes, you’ve checked your forces and now you want to know where pressures have changed on your model.  For this we turn to the humble delta Cp plot.  Generating a delta Cp involves processing exported CFD data from both the new simulation and its baseline. ...

F1 in Schools – Primary is a STEM and Design & Technology competition that looks to engage 9 to 11 year olds.  Students compete in local level competitions with the winners going on to a national final. One of this year’s national finalists is team Lady Lightning,...
Developing at the Extreme

Developing at the Extreme

When developing aerodynamics in CFD, we need to test our designs in the flow conditions we might expect in reality.  The further our test deviates from real life, the less likely it will be that our performance gains will be realised. Over the years that we’ve been...
Preparing Geometry for CFD

Preparing Geometry for CFD

No matter what CFD platform you are using, you will undoubtedly have to make CAD geometry ready for use in a simulation.  This guide details what is involved in preparing the geometry for bramble. For bramble, CAD needs to be turned into a triangulated mesh format...
