What makes Cycling Aerodynamics so tricky?

TotalSim have been involved at the highest level of aerodynamic development in cycling since we were founded, you could say it is in our DNA. As we have dug deeper we have had to evolve our tools and methods to suit our requirements.  Cycling aerodynamics is not as simple you might first think. When we.. read more →

Frictional and Total Resistance calculation using CFD

TotalSim have recently been working in partnership with one of their support customers, Naval Architects Olesinski, on validation of TotalSim’s best practice for hull resistance prediction.   One area in particular that Olesinski were interested in was how well the frictional resistance was predicted by the solver. The NPL high speed hull series was chosen.. read more →

The future of cycling aerodynamics.

TotalSim have been doing some internal R&D to push our methodology forward and provide our clients with the cutting edge needed to win.  This time for cycling applications where we can now model flow around a pedalling athlete. The extra insight this approach will provide us over steady state approaches or wind tunnel testing could be.. read more →

The image above highlights the main vortical structures (swirling flow) generated by the front wing. Aerodynamicts will meticulously optimise the vortex strength, placement, and interaction with one another to manipuate the flow around the rest of the car. Vortex flow management is now one of the key aspects in designing a successful Formula 1 car. .. read more →

Secrets of a Formula 1 Front Wing

The front wing of a modern Formula 1 car is a marvel of aerodynamic engineering and ingenuity. It is the result of fifty years of mechanical evolution, and in this case, it is the survival of the fastest. read more →
