Applications of CFD in Formula Student and Formula SAE

About this workshop

Are you interested in the application of CFD in Formula Student and Formula SAE? Would you like to learn how to develop a car design using a revolutionary cloud-based simulation software?

SimScale and Formula Student Germany have joined forces to offer a free workshop about the application of CFD in Formula Student. During the 4-session course, students will receive a hands-on, interactive introduction to the fundamentals of race car aerodynamics and CFD from leading motorsport aerodynamics experts. Completing the course will enable participants to create precise CFD simulations of their car design and improve their own CFD methodology.

Submitting a homework assignment (multiple choice quiz) will qualify you for a Certificate of Completion.

No prior knowledge or software is required to join this webinar. All participants can get free access to SimScale with all the required simulation features by creating a Community account on our website. If you are unable to attend the live sessions, we would still encourage you to register in order to receive the recordings.
