Exploration and Improvement of Road Vehicle Aerodynamics using LES 2011-01-0176

The paper discusses an appropriate usage of large eddy simulation (LES) in external vehicle aerodynamics. Three different applications, wheelhouse flow, gusty flow and active flow control, are used to demonstrate how LES can be used to obtain new knowledge about vehicle flows. The three examples illustrate the information that can be extracted using LES in vehicle aerodynamics and show the potential of LES in explorations of this complex flow.
