A 2-D computational study of flow over a fully open sunroof of a car with a passenger compartment has been done on a scalar workstation. The critical velocity for resonance in the passenger compartment has been determined. A wind deflector angle study has been done to determine an adequate angle to suppress the resonance. A validation case of computing the resonance condition of the flow over a 3:1 depth to length rectangular cavity has also been done. These resonance studies show the potential of using scalar workstations for a CFD design study.
