The Impact of Aerodynamic Properties on CarSim and TruckSim Simulations

AirShaper and Xitadel CAE Technologies India Private Limited analyzed the effects of aerodynamics on different vehicles. The report focuses on crosswind behavior and fuel consumption. These scenarios were studied by using AirShaper aerodynamic analysis with CarSim and TruckSim vehicle dynamics. 

The partnership of Mechanical Simulation and AirShaper has resulted in engineers quickly being able to obtain accurate aerodynamics data quickly and easily for use with CarSim and TruckSim.

AirShaper is an online cloud solution to analyze and optimize the aerodynamics of cars, trucks or bikes. The fully automated workflow allows users without a background in aerodynamic simulations to upload a 3D model, set up and run simulations. The resulting aerodynamic data can be fed into CarSim and TruckSim.

To learn how to use AirShaper aerodynamics data in CarSim and TruckSim:

Xitadel CAE Technologies India Private Limited is an engineering services firm and the Mechanical Simulation Corporation Sales Agent in India.

Extending Temporary Licenses

As a result of the coronavirus pandemic, everyone is having to adjust their work environments and routines. Many of our users have had to start working from home. This change in routine has led to many not having access to a license.

As part of our continued commitment to supporting our customers, upon request we will extend the 30-day trial we have previously provided to in-maintenance users.

In-maintenance users who would like to extend their temporary license should submit a technical support request using the Mechanical Simulation Support Center: Submit a tech support ticket

A Mechanical Simulation account is required to submit a ticket. If you do not already have one, you must register for one: Register for a Mechanical Simulation account
