Automobile Aerodynamics

Solution

Automobile aerodynamics is an essential automotive design element that directly relates to fuel consumption. Optimizing aerodynamics is expected for all vehicles including racing cars. Generally, aerodynamic performance is tested in a wind tunnel; however, wind tunnel testing is challenging and costly for testing many cases in short period of time. A full scale wind tunnel is a large facility that requires sophisticated advanced experimental control.

Merit/Benefit

3D aerodynamic analysis enables visual observation of air flow around an automobile with computed pressure distribution.

Subject/Scope

  • Automotive aerodynamics(Cd, Cl)
  • Aerodynamic on rail vehicles
  • Wind-resistant structures
