Jaguar Land Rover furthers virtual engineering goals

Jaguar Land Rover has announced its goal of reaching full vehicle verification exclusively through digital simulation by 2020. 
To achieve this, JLR is working with computer-aided engineering (CAE) company Exa Corporation for its computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software – which simulates and analyses fluid flow and heat transfer – providing JLR with a technology platform for ‘simulation driven design.'
Virtual engineering has become a valuable tool in the product development process, helping manufacturers bring better vehicles to market more efficiently – so much so that the industry may be approaching a future where CAE completely replaces the need for physical prototype testing.
