F1 2021 Aerodynamics | CFD Simulation in 3D
by Atif Masood

Project Information


Recently formula 1 race car for 2021 has been annoucned. Significant changes have been made in the design of the F1 2021 car e.g. simplified front wings, sweeping bodywork, bigger rear wings, simplified suspension etc. How will that impact the aerodynamics to answer this question I have done aerodynamics analysis of F1 2021 concept race car. Some initial results are included in this project. Simulation is performed using ANSYS CFX. Around 18 million mesh cells are used in this analysis. For capturing turbulence SST turbulence model is used. More details and short PDF report will be added shortly. ANSYS CFX case file also included for download. Note: These are initial results of F1 CFD based on a not very accurate 3D model of F1 car, more advanced results will follow in near future based on more accurate 3D model.
