Studying the Airflow Over a Car Using an Ahmed Body
The Ahmed body is a benchmark model widely used in the automotive industry for validating simulation tools. We discuss simulating airflow over an Ahmed body to optimize automotive aerodynamics.
Tears of Wine and the Marangoni Effect
Have you ever noticed that when drinking a glass of wine, sometimes “tears” fall down in the inside of the wine glass? This is the Marangoni effect in action! Learn more and see examples…
Simulating Injection Mold Cooling
Injection molding is the most common form of polymer manufacturing because large amounts of products can be produced quickly. By simulating this process, we can avoid defects in these products.
