The automotive industry is shifting its focus to reducing CO2 emissions from its vehicles, and it’s no surprise, given the current state of the environment. Renault is a world leader in the automotive market, working on internal combustion engines, hybrid engines, electric vehicles, and hydrogen fuel cells. To lower their carbon footprint, they’re optimizing the efficiency of every part of their system, whether that’s pumps, fans, or rotating parts. And they chose Cadence to help them do so, given our expertise in the CFD field.
Cadence Omnis CFD (now Fidelity CFD) helps Renault achieve incredibly accurate results and obtain a high-quality mesh. The optimization tools based on parameterized CAD data, in particular, helped them streamline the design of their water pump. The Minamo tool assisted Renault in extracting and analyzing the influence of different design parameters. Alain Lefebvre, Fluid Systems Simulation Expert at Renault, said, “[Cadence’s] CFD simulation and optimization tools are going to be really a key player at Renault and in the automotive industry right now.”
