Lx Sim has supported us for a number of years by providing structural analysis (FEA) and high-quality numerical optimization. The relationship of trust allows us to use the results immediately in order to develop our bike concepts and enhance performance. In addition to their efficiency and quick response time, they allow us to reduce lead times for the manufacturing stage.

AERODYNAMIC OPTIMIZATION OF A ROAD HELMET

Louis Garneau had an objective: to develop the most aerodynamic road helmet for Tour de France 2012.
Lx Sim expertise in aerodynamics via CFD studies allowed us to understand the behavior of the air around a standard road helmet and identify improvement opportunities. Several competitors helmets were also studied for benchmarking.
Our role was to help the client in interpreting the results and bring ideas for aerodynamic improvement.

CFD SIMULATION OF THE PROTECTION LEVEL OFFERED BY A MUDGUARD FOR BIKES

Assess and validate the protection level offered by the addition of a piece of plastic equipment (mudguard) on a bike. This component aims at reducing the dirtiness that a cyclist sustains when he passes through puddles or mud that spray up from the tires.
