The world’s largest class unsteady turbulence simulations of flow around vehicles were conducted using Large Eddy Simulation (LES) on the Earth Simulator in Japan. The main objective of our study is to investigate the validity of LES, as an alternative to a conventional wind tunnel measurement or the Reynolds Averaged Navier-Stokes method, for the assessment of vehicle aerodynamics.
