Aero Theory with Wouter Remmerie
- Having a healthy interest in Aerodynamics
This course starts with an introduction to the basic principles of aerodynamics:
The concept of aerodynamic drag, what is a laminar or turbulent flow, aerodynamic coefficients and so on.
We also touch challenges you can be faced with when running simulations on 3D models
The theory is then applied to fascinating cases in car design, drones and sports,
to illustrate how you can use aerodynamics to make your design perform better, more efficient and more safely.
Who this course is for:
Wouter Remmerie is not unique in many ways: he loves cars, likes traveling, goes mental when he's on a snowboard on fresh powder.
What might be more unique is his interesting combination of experiences:
With degrees in mechanical engineering, product design & car mechanics, he dived into the world of renewable energy, product & industrial design, performance sports, drones, etc.
He much enjoys to analyze & optimize products by means of engineering tools like FEA (finite element analysis) and CFD (computational fluid dynamics). With over 10 years of experience in this area, he founded AirShaper - the online virtual wind tunnel -
Together with his team of enthusiastic aerodynamici, developers & marketeers, he's making the complex but fascinating domain of aerodynamics available to designers around the world. And whenever possible, spending time in a wind tunnel provides some fresh air!
