Numerical Simulations and Analysis on External Flow Field of Van Body Truck Based on ANSYS
The three dimensional model of a van body truck is established, and then the aerodynamic characteristics of the truck is analyzed using finite element method with ANSYS software. Through the analysis, the velocity vector distribution charts, the velocity nephograms and the pressure nephograms are obtained respectively under two different vehicle speeds; then the results are compared which provide necessary guides for the optimal design of the van body.
