Authors Abstract
Content
To-date the primary challenge in conducting aerodynamic CFD simulations of actual vehicles with realistically complex geometry has been the construction of a computational mesh. The CAD-to-Mesh processes used to-date have been laborious, often requiring many weeks of engineering time. In this paper we present a new technique to greatly expedite the CAD-to-Mesh process. The fundamentals of this technique are discussed followed by case studies that show that this technique can reduce the engineering time required for the CAD-to-Mesh process to just a few hours.
