TotalSim Truck Drag-Reduction App

The Truck Add-On Aero app is a web interface for submitting computational fluid dynamic (CFD) jobs to the Ohio Super Computer Cluster. Users of the app will be able to upload geometry, configure and run their CFD simulation, and download the results of their simulation. It also provides a suite of post-processing results that can then be compared for insight of trends and performance.

Ease of Use

Truck App User Interface Results Manager

Users simply have to upload their geometry as already-defined components such as wheel and body.  All simulation and results management is handled by the app and presented to the user in a intuitive interface

Intuitive Interface

Users are able to visualize and adjust their uploaded geometry using the web interface. The status of jobs on the supercomputer cluster are visually represented. Simulation parameters can be easily set in a form for submission.

Truck App User Interface

Students have the opportunity for limited free access to the app.


Robust Solution

Truck App User Interface

The truck app is offshoot from an earlier Truck Add-On Predictor project. By providing the same original static SORHT truck and trailer model as before, users will have pre-existing correlation data to compare their simulations against. This means that the design of experiment is already established for users.
