A new class of analysis software, Concurrent CFD, has proven to be very effective for performing heat, fluid and airflow analyses and optimizing the design and manufacture of automotive parts and systems including heating, cooling, fuel injection, and even body panels. Traditional CFD approaches have been difficult or cumbersome but with Concurrent CFD software, mechanical design teams can accelerate the design process and increase their productivity. This paper includes two case studies using EFD for automotive design applications.
