Flow Simulations around a Generic Ground Transportation System: Using Immersed Boundary Method 2008-01-2613

The purpose of present study is to use Immersed Boundary (IB) method in flow field simulations of a simplified generic ground transportation system (GTS) at 0° yaw. The IB method is usually employed in conjunction with a body non-conforming Cartesian grid. Thus, grid generation is greatly simplified. This plays an important role in reducing the cost and time in design process. This paper demonstrates the ease of use of IB method compared to body fitted mesh method and possible use of IB method to automate the external aerodynamics simulations. Also in order to assess the accuracy, the results are compared with corresponding experimental data reported in literature.
