Aerodynamic Optimisation

TotalSim continue to push boundaries of aerodynamic optimisation, helping you drive towards your performance goals.

Whether your goals are as simple as reducing drag or maximising downforce, or as complex as robust performance through true braking and cornering conditions, TotalSim can help.

We can even help to make your car robust against performance balancing, which can pay dividends in series that are performance balanced.  TotalSim can help make a car/bike that is insensitive to organisers rebalancing techniques, whilst remaining driver friendly in terms of performance.  This is a very different form of optimisation to that of hunting out maximum raw performance.

Our optimisation process often is focused around the deformation software Sculptor® and inhouse optimisation routines, developed by our Managing Director, Dr Rob Lewis.

If you don’t already have performance goals, then TotalSim can also help you set them, using our experience.

We can deform geometry using any combination of parameters.  We can then trade off different performances to get the desired balance for your vehicle.

An example of the kind of deformation that can be made using Sculptor® is shown below.

Aerodynamic Optimisation can be applied with great results to just about every vehicle.
