About the job
CFD is used extensively in the development process of cars. Design changes are evaluated according to the impact they have on different attributes, for instance, the aerodynamic drag, soiling of the vehicle or the under-hood thermal management. During the filling of washer fluid, so called spit-back of washer fluid or foam can occur. Hence, there exist a need to simulate this process in the development phase in order to properly design the washer fluid container.
The objective of this thesis is to develop a simulation method that can be used to evaluate the filling process of washer fluids.
