ST9 Student Edition CFD

Hi all,

We're currently designing a Greenpower race car. In our class, cars all have the same motor and batteries and the winner is the car that covers the greatest distance within 1 hour.

The best cars average around 40mph, and with only 0.5hp or so, Aerodynamics are the key to success.

 

As a result, we'd like to test our designs with a CFD software to allow us to make them more aerodynamic before we build the car. Is this something that the Solid Edge ST9 Student Edition offers or will we have to export the designs to another software?

Thanks

Sam

FloEFD has a module that gives you embedded CFD inside of Solid Edge.  Check it out and see if they offer an academic license.
