Congress: Numerical and physical experiments on the passby noise of the iShare

Event: FISITA World Congress 14-16 September 2021 online

Name: Charalampos (Babis) Tsimis, project leader

Company: Applus IDIADA

Presentation Title: F2020-MCF-005 Numerical and physical experiments on the passby noise of the iShare

Please introduce yourself briefly…

My name is Babis Tsimis, I work for the Body Development department of Applus IDIADA as a project leader focusing on multiphysics CFD simulations and I am based in Spain. By training I am a physicist, but I was won over by a particular physics field, aerodynamics, a long time ago and since then I am running simulations and performing tests mainly in the automotive world.

What you will talk about at this year’s FISITA World Congress?

The paper/presentation gives an overview of the experimental and numerical work performed in the field of aeroacoustics. A compact car was tested in the semi anechoic chamber and the results were used to develop and validate the numerical methodology. Lessons learned and future steps are described in detail.

What benefits will participants gain from your presentation?

Learn about the potential and the limitations of numerical methods on the problem of car aeroacoustics.

Which trends do you consider as the most important for your domain of research and your geographical region?

Car electrification is the most important trend in the automotive world right now, and that brings with it several challenges (eg. aeroacoustic noise more important with a quieter powertrain, battery cooling crucial for passenger safety). The opportunity ahead is a green vehicle that minimises pollution (both particle pollution and noise pollution).

About the FISITA World Congress

Since 1947, the FISITA World Congress has been the leading international meeting place for industry experts, engineers and executives to exchange ideas and discuss the trends that drive the automotive industry forward. The theme for the 38th FISITA World Congress is 'From automobile to mobility. New roles. New challenges' and it will take place 14-16 September 2021, with the opportunity for the global audience to join virtually available for the first time. Registration is now open, with the Early Bird and special registration rates available until 31 August 2021.

Content from the 2020 FISITA Web Congress is available within the FISITA Technical Library, while material from previous Congress events back to 1998 is available in the FISITA Store. By the time of this year’s Congress, all the content will be available within the FISITA Technical Library, with free access provided to FISITA members.
