Aerodynamic Characteristics of A Car-Trailer Combination 670100

Wind tunnel tests to determine the aerodynamic characteristics of a production automobile towing a typical 20 ft trailer are described. The aerodynamic forces and moments imposed on the trailer under cross wind conditions are presented. The complete six-component aerodynamic data, in coefficient form, is included for use in computer programs of stability and handling analysis.
