Flow Simulation With AcuSolve to Improve Railway Vehicles

Nippon Sharyo, one of the largest and leading Japanese railway vehicle manufacturers established in 1896, has been contributing to the public transportation system, which includes the latest models of Shinkansen (the bullet trains) of the ages. With the abundant experiences in manufacturing, it is pursuing new technologies to provide safe, comfortable and environmentally friendly vehicles with universal design. This presentation gives an overview how Nippon Sharyo applies CFD to the improvements in the field of safety, amenity and productivity; it explains about exterior flow problems around high-speed trains, interior flow problems of HVAC system and metal flow problems during the joining process of light metal by FSW.
