Aerodynamic Evaluation on Formula SAE Vehicles 2001-01-1270
Aerodynamics plays an important role in the dynamic behavior of a vehicle. The purpose of this paper is to evaluate external and internal aerodynamics of the 1999 and 2000 Lawrence Technological University Formula SAE vehicles. The external aerodynamic study will be limited to form and interference drag and the evaluation of lift. The internal aerodynamics study will be limited to ram air to the intake, heat exchanger, and oil cooler.
