Engine design is so complex nowadays, especially when working on future concepts to meet requirements in 2020 and beyond, that the human brain cannot solve them that easily, states PSA Peugeot Citroën’s Clément Dumand – whose team first adopted Convergent Science’s meshing software programme back in 2010.
“That’s why we use Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) more and more, and some algorithms, to solve this very gritty problem. Before Convergent, my team mainly used CFD in order to understand some specific points during tests. We didn’t really know why things happened. Now we do simulation in advance, using CFD to design the grid lines of new concepts and then test them on the bench.”
