Aerodynamic Optimization of Exhaust for Car Compressors

Pollution and fuel consumption are the most important features of thermal engines that must be drastically improved in the coming years.

With soaring pollution in cities around the world, legislators are demanding car manufacturers to put systems on the market that are as clean and efficient as possible, whatever the driving style or conditions, from traffic jams to highload mountain trips, in hot and cold conditions.

Furthermore to reduce CO2 levels, thus diminishing the effects on global warming, fuel consumption must be significantly limited in those same real-world usage conditions. These environmental pressures are translated into legislation: the newest EU7 emission rules and new CAFE regulation will be implemented in Europe from 2023.

In order to achieve these goals, all consuming parts of cars are being meticulously analyzed to try and decrease losses to the maximum through design improvements, while taking into account inherent negative effects such as condensation issues for the compressor. It is within this framework that Renault turned to Numflo - the consulting group of NUMECA International, which is renowned for its top level expertise in multiphysics design and analysis.
