Step by Step Walkthrough: Spoiler Support

ANSYS designed this TryItNow! experience to give you quick access to ANSYS AIM simulations on the cloud. This AIM demonstration shows the

air flow over an automotive rear spoiler and the resulting stresses in the

spoiler support. The simulation demonstrates the ease of setting up and

solving a multiphysics simulation.

This geometry has been processed in SpaceClaim to use half the symmetric part and add a fluid flow enclosure around the structure.
