Cloud-based CFD simulation in automotive design

We propose to calculate relevant industrial CFD cases using OpenFOAM with the fortissimo-Infrastructure. The cases are supplied by Volkswagen AG and cover the fields of external car aerodynamics (with both steady (RANS) and transient (DES) turbulence schemes) and aeroacoustics. Those cases require considerable computation resources, therefore efficient parallelization is neccessary. Those cases are already calculated by Volkswagen AG for some configurations on their internal HPC-infrastructure, so we can compare our performance to an existing state-of-the-art industrial HPC-environment and also verify results with existing wind-tunnel measurements.
