The present study investigates the simulation of slot jets on the rear of an Ahmed body to reduce drag. Improved Delayed Detached Eddy Simulation (IDDES) turbulence model is used to model flow separation and vortex shedding on a 25° Ahmed body. Several optimizations are conducted to maximize drag reduction with a net reduction of 16%. This is accomplished by creating a fluid structure in the wake.
