Processing CFD Simulation Data
From the series: Improving Your Racecar Development
Use the strong matrix processing capabilities of MATLAB® to work with your CFD simulation data. Christoph Hahn and Nicolas Gautier from MathWorks demonstrate how to get CFD results into MATLAB, and perform analyses such as momentum balance, drag force, and swirling strength (vorticity) prediction. They also show how to plot flow results and share it with your team. MATLAB can contribute to your workflow when you’re using a lot of CFD simulation. Consider automating or scripting your analyses, customizing plots, or sharing your results with colleagues that are already working with MATLAB or Simulink®. In the software demonstration, you’ll see how to import CFD results into MATLAB and to visualize them adequately in a slice quiver plot. The analyses includes calculations of momentum balance and drag force and a more complex example of custom analysis showing a swirling strength computation using the Lambda Ci criterion which is a local, robust, and easy-to-interpret criterion.
