Components to Simulate with SimScale

Using cloud-native CAE with SimScale, your engineering team can access and perform online CFD and FEA simulations anywhere in the world, covering applications such as vehicle aerodynamics, tank sloshing, underhood thermal management, and water fording.

Among many, here are some components you can simulate online using SimScale:

  • Vehicle bodies (aerodynamics, circulation, turbulent flow, velocity, etc.)
  • Gear unit and power train (stress calculation, cooling, vibration)
  • Chassis (vibration, eigenfrequencies)
  • Adjustment rack (stress zones)
  • Interior (air conditioning, thermal comfort, airflow, acoustics, temperature distribution)
  • Engine compartment (stress analysis, cooling)
  • Wheels

Customer Success

Carlsson optimized their car’s aerodynamics in 5 hours.

Using SimScale, Carlsson Autotechnik simulated the aerodynamics around their C25 car. With a quick simulation, they examined and optimized the aerodynamics, saving an average of $40k on hardware costs with a simulation cost of a mere $60.
