I am from Lawrence Technological University’s Formula SAE team. I have been working on simulating our current car (aero) to better understand how it will perform, as we as trying to perform CFD on last year’s car (no aero) to compare the two.
I uploaded my geometry, and created my mesh using the same settings but changing parameters for the different orientation (x,y,z are not the same between the 2 models). I created a mesh with 11 illegal cells, and it seemed to look pretty good. However, when I run the simulation I am getting lift and drag numbers that are higher than the car with aero.
Does anyone have any ideas of what I am doing wrong?
