Numerical Simulation Analysis of Car Overtaking on SST Turbulence Model


Article Preview

Thebased SST (shear strain transport) turbulence model combines the advantages of and turbulence models and performs well in numerical experiment. In the paper, the SST turbulence model is applied to model vehicle overtaking process with numerical simulation technology. The change graph of drag coefficient and side force coefficient are gained. Analysis of the phenomena is presented at the end.
