Flow over a Mercedes Benz Actros Truck using StarCCM+

This project deals with simulating the flow around a Mercedes Benz Actros truck with and without the trailer attachment, We will be studying the production of wake and how the trailer attachment affects the wake produced by the tractor and the effect this has on the production of drag on the vehicle. Suitable reports and plots will be used to measure the drag coefficient and to assess convergence. Various post processing techniques can be used to provide animations that clearly show the flow patterns.

What will you do in this project?

Step 1 - Geometry clean up and surface wrapping

Step 2 - Wind tunnel creation

Step 3 - Meshing

Step 4 - Post processing

    In this project, you will work on a Mercedes Benz Actros Truck and setup for cases with and without the trailer. The simulations will be run for both cases and the drag produced will be studied and analysed based on how separation takes place. The following steps will be followed for this project:

    This project deals with simulating the flow around an Ahmed Body, which is a prototypical car model. In order to perform this simulation, a computational domain will be defined in the form of a virtual wind tunnel. The simulation will be run for 25 and 35° slant angles and the flow patterns will be studied for both cases. Multiple cases for various slant angles can be run to show how the separation at the rear takes place and how the wake is affected, ultimately affecting the drag produced by the body. Finally, the results will be compared with the experimental results to get an idea of which solution and turbulence models to use and fine tune the setup to provide the best results.
