CFD simulation of a generic high speed train using LES


In corporation with an ongoing research project at the TU Berlin numerical investigations concerning drag determination of a generic high speed train shall be performed at the Division of Fluid Dynamics of the Chalmers University in Gothenburg. Large Eddy Simulation (LES) shall be used to generate high quali- ty data aiming a detailed comparison with experimental results.


The numerical results shall be used for comparison with experimental investigations. In order to validate the experimental setup boundary conditions as details in ground simulation shall be investigated. The work will be supervised by the Professor of Computational Fluid Dynamics, Sinisa Krajnovic.
