Aerodynamic flutter analysis for sports cars

The simulation of flutter is crucial in the automotive and aerospace industries to ensure performance, stability and safety. Flutter is a phenomenon in which aerodynamic forces lead to strong and potentially destructive vibrations. These simulations lead to design optimization, ensure structural integrity, compliance with safety standards and improve overall vehicle performance and customer satisfaction. In summary, the simulation of flutter is critical to predicting and avoiding potentially damaging aerodynamically induced vibrations.

Solution approaches:

  • Simulations can predict the behavior of the bumper in real-life scenarios and ensure that it remains stable and safe in different wind speeds and conditions.
  • Reduce prototype testing: By using simulations to determine stance and flutter behavior, manufacturers can eliminate extensive physical prototype testing, saving time and resources.
  • Simulations help to predict stresses, strains and fatigue and ensure that the structure can withstand these dynamic loads.
