A Spotlight on Solar Radiation

Automotive head- and tail-light designs are getting more and more sophisticated. As such access to CFD simulation tools that can accurately simulate real life conditions is important. This 5-minute video features some of the solar radiation capabilities of FloEFD using DTRM as well as Monte Carlo radiation models. The video also covers investigating shadows and hotspots, use of parametric studies as well as Design of Experiment functionality which can be used to find the optimum design. While this video features FloEFD for CATIA V5, FloEFD is embedded into the world’s most popular design platforms including PTC Creo, Siemens NX and Solid Edge.
