Vehicle Aerodynamic Performance

Refine the detailed body shape to meet aerodynamic drag and finite element targets before design freeze. Improve the ability for designers and engineers to innovate in balancing design aesthetics with aerodynamics.

Aerodynamic design starts with the earliest concepts of the vehicle based on its shape and proportion to meet styling intent, passenger space, and component packaging needs.

Aerodynamics simulation changes the vehicle development process, reducing both vehicle development costs and design cycle time. Because of its inherent advantages over physical testing methods, simulation can bring much more design performance feedback into each stage of development, improving the ability for designers and engineers to innovate in balancing design aesthetics with aerodynamics.
