An unsteady computational fluid dynamics simulation of the viscous-turbulent flow around a tractor-trailer has been done using FLUENT’s realizable k-epsilon turbulence model and is supported by experimental validation. The primary objective was to compute a time-dependent solution of the flow around a tractor-trailer in a virtual wind tunnel and study the pressures on the floor.
