CFD-Vehicle Aerodynamics

On this page


The aerodynamic characteristics of ground vehicles has a pronounced effect on acceleration, speed, fuel efficiency and handling. CFD-Vehicle Aerodynamics helps in evaluating the feasibility of new designs for vehicles. 

This field uses numerical and experimental techniques for accurate predictions and understanding the flow behaviour. Computational vehicle aerodynamics are time-dependent simulations that are used for the improvement of vehicle properties with flow control or aerodynamic shape. Through the use of CATIA for geometric modelling, ICEMCFD for grid generation and FLUENT for analysis, several industry specific problems can be solved. 

This course empowers students to conduct independent analysis related to vehicle aerodynamics.


  • Create geometric models for vehicle aerodynamics problems.
  • Create CFD models and solve different aerodynamics problems.
  • Use Ansys ICEM CFD and Ansys FLUENT software for modelling, solving and post processing with proficiency. 
  • Analyse industry-specific problems for imposing appropriate grid types, boundary conditions, and solver settings to arrive at converged CFD results.
