CFD Optimization for Efficient Aerodynamics and More Beautiful Styling

Compared to the current NEDC test, which was developed over 30 years ago, the importance of aerodynamics will rise with the new WLTP proposed for implementation from 2017. The WLTP will put more emphasis on real-world higher-speed driving in order to improve fuel economy. For truly accurate and insightful results, not all the work can be undertaken in a wind tunnel. Instead, aerodynamic modelling, like for the Jaguar XE, can be achieved entirely through simulation-driven design with CFD software tools from Exa Corporation.
