Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


This paper reviews a validation project on CFD commercial codes organized by Society of Automobile Engineers of Japan (JSAE) in 2001. As benchmark problems, four major objects of vehicle flow design are selected for Vehicle aerodynamics, Engine cylinder flow, Air-conditioning and Defroster duct flow. 14 titles of commercial software sold in Japan are applied to these problems. The results of each problem are compared with reference experimental data and evaluated in vi ews of vehicle design and development. Feasibility of auto-meshing techniques and computation cost in recent hardware are also discussed.
