Tesla Cybertruck Aerodynamic Analysis in 3D
by Atif Masood

Project Information


Cybertruck, an all-electric battery-powered pickup, is recently launched by Tesla and it has been talk of the town ever since especially the shape of the truck. I was wondering how the aerodynamics of Cybertruck will look like. Therefore in this simulation I have fetched this awesome CAD model of Cybertruck from GrabCAD by Nathan Allen (https://grabcad.com/library/tesla-cybertruck-1). I have cleaned and prepared the model for CFD study and then ran flow simulations on it. Air velocity is 30 m/s (updated) and turbulence model used is SST. Mesh consists of around 3.5 million elements. 6 Prism layers are used around car surface. Steady state simulations are performed using ANSYS CFX. Here are some initial results. I have uploaded (CFX/Fluent case) simulation file for download. More detailed report is also included (see below). For CAD model download check "Refetch of" below.
