CFD simulation of airflow through the throttle body of the air intake system applied to the Formula Student vehicle
In this paper, a simulation of their flow through the throttle valve on the Formula Student vehicle was performed throttle valve is an element that, according to the regulations of the Formula Student competition, must be present in the intake installation of the vehicle’s power unit if it is a competition in class IC. The correct design of the throttle is of great importance anchor or the power unit to work properly, but also to extract the maximum performance of the power unit itself, and thus of the competition vehicle as a whole. One of the main tasks of the throttle is to allow air to flow with as little resistance to flow as possible. For the CFD simulation in this work, ANSYS Fluent was used, which proved to be a very powerful tool in the CFD simulation of the throttle body.
