TotalSim were recently asked to scan a John Player Norton replica motorcycle that was ridden by Peter Williams to win the Formula 750 TT in 1973.
The rider and bike were scanned and processed inhouse. The scanned geometries were then passed straight into our automated mesh to solve process. The model was tested through a range of conditions including through true corning conditions using our cornering solver.
In the weeks to come TotalSim will provide a little more insight into the flow around the bike and rider, but for the moment here is a quick teaser rendered animation.
