Aerodynamic Test Methods and Applications - Part 2 of 2
(Session Code: CVA600)

Room TBD  1:30 p.m.

This session will address aerodynamic testing requirements, technologies, facilities and methods with a view toward improving efficiency and reducing emissions of medium and heavy commercial ground vehicles. Papers are solicited that address aerodynamic related corrections, correlations and assessments for various data sources including wind tunnel, and on-track/road testing.

Organizers - Ilhan Bayraktar, Oshkosh Corporation; Kevin Horrigan, Exa Corporation; Angus Lock, Auto Research Center LLC; Rick Mihelic, Peterbilt; Simon Watkins, RMIT University; Richard Wood, Solus-Solutions and Technologies
