TotalSim Media Center

Who we are and what we do, in the words of our president, Ray Leto.


Enhancing Cabin Comfort for NASCAR Drivers

TotalSim used advanced thermal management techniques and STAR-CCM+ simulations to assist NASCAR in creating a short exhaust cooling system to improve cabin comfort for their drivers.

Total Sim Flow Visualizations

Click here to view some examples of flow visualizations that TotalSim has produced using OpenFOAM. Some of the visualizations only use ParaView and some have been rendered in Blender.

Flow Visualization of a Semi Truck

Learn how Total Sim created a flow visualization of a semi truck and trailer using OpenFoam. This specific simulation was rendered using the Blender software.

Flow Visualization of Two Ford Fusion NASCAR Sprint Cup Cars

TotalSim computed this flow visualization of two Ford Fusion NASCAR Sprint Cup cars. This transient solution was run to evaluate the effect of two-car drafting using OpenFOAM & rendered using the Blender software.

Flow Visualization of Cyclists Drafting in a Peloton

Jump into this TotalSim production to learn how cyclists draft off one another in a peloton to reduce aerodynamic drag and the energy required to maintain competitive speed. This simulation was created so cyclists can better conceptualize the wakes, airflow and drag within a peloton.

Simulation of NASCAR Airflow

Watch this simulation to learn about the airflow around a NASCAR vehicle. NASCAR R&D used TotalSim's HPC solutions at Ohio State Supercomputer Center (OSC) to model the aerodynamic performance of track vehicles. This simulation illustrates some of the work that TotalSim completed in assisting NASCAR R&D model aerodynamic performance.

CFD Web Application

Click here to learn about how Total Sim can create a CFD web application directly customized to your company's needs. This step by step explanation details how to begin this process and the benefits that come with creating a CFD web application.

Leveraging OSSCC for NASCAR Modeling

Learn about how TotalSim used the Ohio State Super Computer Center to model the aerodynamic performance of NASCAR vehicles. TotalSim and Ohio State Super Computer Center have a long relationship of working together. When NASCAR came to TotalSim, the OSSCC was helpful in the modeling process.

2017 Acura NSX Airflow

Watch this simulation to view a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulation of the 2017 Acura NSX in high detail. This sim depicts all of the parts that go into increasing airflow and maximizing the overall performance of the vehicle. 

2016 Honda Performance Development AeroKit
