Use Computational Fluid Dynamics to understand your vehicle
Computational Fluid Dynamics is a valuable tool to understand and develop any product, including a race vehicle. We provide a wealth of experience from the highest levels of motorsport and years of training others commercially in the use of this tool.

How do we get started?
Just contact us, CFD projects can be small or large, we’ll just discuss what you need and make sure that we are only doing any simulations that will atually provide you with a benefit. We are very open about what we can help with, and what you’d be best just quickly testing at the track.
Our experience really ramped up at Southampton University in the UK where Scott was one of 8 students to undertake the prestigious MSc in Race Car Aerodynamics. This is the same university that Adrian Newey graduated from, amongst a huge number of current F1 Aerodynamicists. (If you want to work in F1, this Masters Degree is your best chance!)
Anyway, from there Scott worked at Williams F1 and used CFD extensively to test concepts and develop the vehicle. CFD is an invaluable tool for any development work in any industry, and the massive supercomputers that all F1 teams have prove the ever increasing value that is being placed on simulation. Scott’s CFD involvement helped to shape some of the defining features that can still be seen on current Formula One vehicles despite a few years passing!
After returning to Australia to start a family in a non-rainy country, Scott worked as a CFD Specialist for the Australian distributor of ANSYS CFD products. He was responsible for consulting, training courses and technical support for all of the Australian ANSYS CFD customers including many that cannot be spoken of…
Safe to say that the experience we have at AeroDesign will have even your most complex project covered, but more importantly, if you have a simple CFD project, we know what we are doing and we’ll get it done quickly, saving you money for building your dreams!
