    Autodesk CFD software has gone through dramatic advancements that cover every aspect of the typical workflow necessary to perform an aerodynamics analysis. We will examine new workflows available to capitalize on your CAD data using SimStudio Tools for CAD cleanup or surface wrapping to nearly eliminate any CAD preparation. We will then do a deep dive into the new turbulence models available and the best practices and which ones to use for aerodynamics simulations. We will touch on mesh adaption best practices for aerodynamics to reduce the typical meshing guesswork and increase solving efficiency for complex aerodynamics models. The demonstration will conclude with methods to accurately capture the wall force results to measure lift and drag on bodies using efficient techniques. This class is designed to present the latest and proven workflows to perform aerodynamics simulations to eliminate out-of-date inefficient and less-accurate workflows used in the past.
