Hi-Tech’s CAE expertise provides comprehensive Computational Fluid Dynamics and Finite Element Analysis services to assist engineers in developing efficiently streamlined automotive underbody design. We conduct precise simulation specifically for underbody, considering the aerodynamic and thermal complexities associated with modern automotive design.
Hi-Tech’s CAE expertise in Automotive Underbody Analysis:
Responsible for generating about 20% of the total drag, automotive underbody requires to be designed with equal streamlining as that of the outer skin. Additionally, the underbody design must be capable enough to carry away the heat from its surface to the atmosphere. To address such challenges, Hi-Tech provides FEA and CFD analyses which includes:
Drag, Lift and Moment Analysis which helps in reducing the “Co-efficient of Drag (Cd)” and promote vehicle performance with an improvement in fuel efficiency. These analyses provides a room for engineers to design underbody that prevents aerodynamic forces such as drag, lift and moment.
Thermal Analysis which is a crucial part of thermal management of underbody, providing a predictable behavior of underhood and underbody components against thermal loads. It provides engineers to select suitable underbody materials based on their specific requirements.
Conjugate Heat Transfer Analysis to improve underbody design with the ability to transfer the heat generated from the engine to the atmosphere. This analysis helps in relocating the subsystems like intercooler in order to avoid the blockage for air flow path and avoid the generation of re-circulating zones around the engine vicinity.
