hello everybody,

i have to do a CFD simulation using acusolve for a front wing of a race car.

i ve done the 2d and 3d mesh in hypermesh , i exported it in acusolve and i ve done the simultation

now i want to see the results in hyperview, in particular i need to know the LIFT DRAG and SIDE FROCE COEFFICIENTS .

can anyone help me with some advices or similar case of study?

another important question is..what kind of turbulence model can i use? i ve always used the SST one but i don t know if there is another good one

thank you so much

One Option is to run the entire simulation in Virtual Wind Tunnel and that way your post processing would be very simple/automatic. Lift, Drag etc are written in the pdf.


You can open .Log file (assuming ACUSIM.DIR also exists in the same folder) directly in HyperView.

If you wish to get drag, lift, etc manually, you would need scripts. Best to contact Altair Italy for that.
