A CFD Approach via Large Eddy Simulation to the Flow Field with Complex Geometrical Configurations: A Study Case of Vehicle Underbody Flows 2009-01-0332
CFD is becoming an inevitable modern engineering tool in the vehicle aerodynamics. A LES based CFD approach is proposed for analysis for flows with complex geometrical configurations to which detailed experiments, high grid-density LES or DNS cannot be applicable. How CFD results should be evaluated for cases in which the related experiments are not available. The procedure proposed consists of four stages, i.e., inspections of solutions with coarse and fine meshes, reconfirmation of energy spectrum, references to the similar experiments, explanations of results obtained. The procedures are applied to the underbody flows with a semi-complex underbody configuration.
