## CFD Lesson 6: SOLIDWORKS Race Car and 3DEXPERIENCE Fluid Scenario Creation

How do you inspire students with fluid dynamics and the physics and math behind Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) ? The SOLIDWORKS Race Car external turbulent flow example can be done in a lab period. By simplifying the mesh, understanding model size in a boundary box, and tradeoffs between capability, time, and accuracy, you can make a virtual twin of a wind tunnel test. David starts with SOLIDWORKS and introduces PLM through the 3DEXPERIENCE Add-In. From the SOLIDWORKS Task Pane, use the Fluid Scenario Creation App to define the model, scenario and get results.
