Subject to environmental, technological, security and cost constraints, the Automotive industry faces tremendous challenges. Numerical simulation suited to solving case-specific issues is more than ever required for anticipated, predictive, safe, secure and efficient designs.
Maintain innovation, reliability and cost-efficiency across environmental and technological breakthroughs
Automotive design has become a complex balancing act. Among today’s challenges are environmental concerns about fuel consumption, electrical car, new disruptive technologies leading to re-think connected and autonomous vehicles, and worldwide competition which puts pressure on manufacturing costs. More than ever, design needs to be anticipated, predictive and efficient to produce innovative, reliable and cost-efficient products.
In the context of Industry 4.0 and the digitalization of the design and manufacturing processes, Nextflow Software contributes to reducing or replacing physical prototyping and field tests by numerical simulations in the field of fluid dynamics.
