Dr.-Ing. Daniel Stoll, IFS, University of Stuttgart
Dr. rer. nat. Reinhard Blumrich, FKFS, Head of NVH Department and Wind Tunnel Consulting,
Dr.-Ing. Felix Wittmeier, FKFS, Head of Model-scale Wind Tunnel and Wind Tunnel Research,
Dr.-Ing. Gustavo Estrada, Mercedes-AMG, Technical Lead Aerodynamics
This course is targeted to professionals who work or who are interested in the area of vehicle aerodynamics and aeroacoustics. The professionals can be technicians or engineers who either are newcomers or who simply wish to learn more about these topics. The course focuses on the fundamentals of aerodynamics and aeroacoustics covering ongoing measurement techniques as well as computational approaches and optimization strategies. The various facets of the course content are presented as both, theoretical lectures and practical training especially in wind tunnels.
The course is designed to provide a detailed understanding of vehicle aerodynamics and vehicle aeroacoustics. The participants will be trained to be able to carry out respective development work at car manufacturers and suppliers under consideration of the various interfaces to other disciplines.
|Understand basic aerodynamic physics and relationships; apply fundamental aerodynamic equations on standard flow situations; assess aerodynamic coefficients and aerodynamic results; influences on vehicle drag and lift as well as vehicle dynamics
|Understand the principal acoustic and aeroacoustic physics; choose the adequate measurement instrumentation and setup; acquire expertise to assess aeroacoustic analyses and results
|Understand the approaches when implementing computational methods in aerodynamics and aeroacoustics; being able to assess the possible field of application and the advantages and disadvantages concerning the various numerical methods realistically
|Learn to conduct aerodynamic and aeroacoustic investigations under experimental conditions in our modern wind tunnel facilities (full-scale aeroacoustic and scale-model wind tunnel as well as briefly thermal wind tunnel) as well as to evaluate the measured data
