Vehicle Aerodynamics Tutorial

In this tutorial, a race car will get simulated. It contains new geometry compared to the first two tutorials. The user should have a good look. In the folder special_bc some interesting files can be found. Files in this folder can have keywords as prefix. Here inlets are used. When a *.txt file with a corresponding name is used, MantiumFlow will apply a boundary condition as defined in the text file. In this case this is used to simulate the air intake and exhaust system of the car. There is also a folder for porous media to simulate the heat exchangers. In the demo version MantiumFlow automatically applies the Darcy-Forchheimer coefficients. In the full version, the user can do so.
