Aerodynamic Study on Vehicle Shape with the “Panel Method”: An Effort to Calculate the Influence of Shape Characteristics on Aerodynamic Performance 801401

The “Panel method” is used as a means for preventive aerodynamic examination and evaluation of the shape of a vehicle. Also, with inviscid flow some useful considerations may be extrapolated; for instance, the influence of shape changes in the forebody may be evaluated. Obviously, for a complete analysis, viscous corrections may be introduced.
