Our solutions : Thermal issues in the passenger compartment

The thermal comfort of your passenger compartments is a crucial design issue. It is essential to make sure that the passengers and, if applicable, the electronic equipment are protected from extreme temperatures. Our teams are able to assist you during these studies.

Whether you are dealing with the passenger compartments of road or rail vehicles, aircraft or drone cockpits or even the cabs of vehicles subjected to high thermal stresses (armoured or agricultural vehicles), our expertise and CFD tools are a valuable way of optimising your vehicles.

Do you design public transport vehicles? The regular opening and closing of doors in these vehicles consume energy and greatly reduce passenger comfort. Our teams are able to simulate these door operations in order to analyse the aerothermal mechanisms that result from them. The knowledge gained of these mechanisms then makes it possible to consider modifications that will optimise the aerothermal functioning of your vehicles.

Our areas of expertise


Coming from the world of motor sports and based in the technology centre of the Magny Cours circuit, the Aero Concept Engineering team is deeply immersed in the automotive world. From motor sports to series production, along with the world of non-standard vehicles, ACE has contributed its expertise to numerous automotive projects.


Our engineers have been involved in aeronautic projects for many years. They have studied certified aircraft, ultralight aircraft (ULMs), drones and even airships using CFD techniques or in the wind tunnel.


Since HGVs, construction machinery and agricultural machinery are subject to aerodynamic and thermal problems very similar to those affecting passenger cars, our teams are regularly called upon to work in these fields.


Pantographs, landing doors, carriage doors, train tunnel entries, crossings, air conditioning… These are just a few examples of the railway-related topics that we have been asked to address.


Are you responsible for the construction of a new district or a new building? Do you want to make sure that the aeraulic and thermal issues are dealt with prior to the construction work? Then please contact us!


Whether earthbound or airborne, armoured or not, take advantage of our experience to optimise the thermal and aerodynamic aspects of your military vehicles.

Sports and Records

Make your entry into the world of ultimate performance thanks to our sports-dedicated entity aeroptimum.fr. Our aerodynamic engineers will help you get the very best out of your machine and open the way to records, medals and victories!


Research has been one of our sectors of activity for many years. With our wind-tunnel tests, the design of mock-ups and our expertise in CFD, we have cooperated in the preparation of many theses and dissertations.
