The transport sector is making a significant contribution to the global CO2 emissions causing Global Warming. A large portion of this is caused by heavy-duty vehicles like tractor semi-trailer combinations. Since tractor semi-trailer combinations are often operated at relatively high speeds for long periods of time their fuel consumption, and...

In the European Union greenhouse gas emissions of heavy duty vehicles make up 30% of the total caused by road transport. By placing vehicles in a platoon configuration the aerodynamic drag can be heavily reduced. The effect of platooning has been studied on both American and European type vehicles. However many of these studies only disclose the...

A systematic grid convergence study is conducted for the Detached-Eddy Simulation (DES) of the massively separated flow around a NACA0021 airfoil at high angle of attack. In order to study the convergence characteristics of DES/LES problems, velocity fields using a series of grids must be generated that demonstrate sufficient dynamic similarity...
