1st Automotive CFD Prediction Workshop


Tsuzuki Lecture Theatre, St Anne’s College, Woodstock Road OX2 6HS


Neil Ashton

Date & Time

Wednesday 11 Dec 2019 - Thursday 12 Dec 2019


Automotive CFD community (both academia and industry)

The main objective of the 1st Automotive CFD Prediction Workshop is to assess the predictive capability of CFD codes for road-cars geometries. Through mandatory geometry, boundary conditions and computational grids the aim is to provide practical modelling guidelines to the automotive community e.g best-practice turbulence modelling, meshing, numerical schemes.

This first workshop will be held on the 11th-12th December 2019 in Oxford at St Anne's College. Computing the test-cases is not required to attend the workshop but we encourage everyone to consider submitting results. Three test-cases will be studied; SAE Notchback geometry, DrivAer Fastback and DrivAer Estate vehicle which are described fully in the test-cases section.

Partipicants who submit results will be automatically allocated a 15 minute presentation slot however those who wish to present relevant material without computing the test-cases should send a 500 word abstract to by Monday 16th September 2019

The workshop fee is £250 (£200 for PhD students) for the two-day event including tea/coffee breaks and a three course meal on the 11th in the Randolph hotel. Accommodation is available at St Anne's for £82 per night (including breakfast) and due to space limitations there is a maximum limit of 100 people to attend the workshop.
