Scaling New Heights in Aerodynamics Optimization: The 50:50:50 Method - White Paper

Aerodynamics development is all about trade-offs, striking the right balance between styling needs and aerodynamic concerns. The 50:50:50 method simulates 50 design points with high-fidelity CFD simulations that use a computational mesh of 50 million cells for each design point in a total elapsed time of 50 hours after baseline problem setup. By enabling full exploration of a large design space, the technique can lead to more informed trade-offs and choices in the early stage of the development process.
