SAE 2014 Commercial Vehicle Engineering Congress
Technical Session Schedule
Wednesday, October 8
Room 55/57 4:00 p.m.
Aerodynamic drag reduction has been identified as a primary technology for increasing fuel economy and thus improving the economic health of the trucking industry as well as the environmental health of the US. The acceptance of aerodynamics as a major player in trucking efficiency has increased significantly over the past decade and this trend is expected to continue. Position papers on the current status and future role of aerodynamic technology on vehicle and vehicle component design are desired. Proposed papers should focus on the science and engineering challenges including atmospheric effects, trailer aerodynamics, tire and wheel aerodynamics and safety.
Organizers - Kevin Horrigan, Exa Corporation; Richard Wood, Solus-Solutions and Technologies; Rick Mihelic, Peterbilt
The papers in this session are available in SAE Technical Paper Collection, COLL-TP-00456, and also individually. To purchase visit collections.sae.org
