Experimental and Theoretical Car Flow Investigation 860213
During the past few years substantial advances have been made in reducing the drag of automobiles. Future improvements are becoming increasingly difficult to achieve; for this reason more-advanced flow investigation methods are required.
This paper shows some results of flow analysis performed using two methods. The first is experimental and is based on car-wake flow surveying; the second is computational and is based on inviscid flow calculations simply corrected for viscous effects.
