Aerodynamics for Formula SAE:
On-Track Performance Evaluation 2007-01-0897
The measured on-track performance of a Formula SAE car with a high downforce aerodynamics package is presented. Data logged from variety of different driving tests is used to determine how the addition of ‘wings’ affects the car's acceleration, cornering, braking and slaloming abilities. These results are then compared with analytical predictions for the same car, presented in earlier papers [1, 2].
