Aerodynamics has seen many developments due to the growth of scientific computing, which has caused the design cycle time of aerospace vehicles to be heavily reduced. Today computational aerodynamics appears in the preliminary step of a new design, relegating costly, time-consuming wind tunnel testing to the final stages of design. In the aviation field there is great interest in high-speed vehicle design. Hypersonic vehicles represent the next frontier of passenger transportation to and from space. However, several design issues must be addressed, including vehicle aerodynamics and aerothermodynamics, aeroshape design optimization, aerodynamic heating, boundary layer transition, and so on. Author: Giuseppe Pezzella, Antonio Viviani. The basic principles of vehicle aerodynamics and tire rolling resistance are described separately in the contexts of passenger vehicles, and heavy vehicles such as trucks and vehicle combinations. Recent developments and future trends in both the aerodynamic properties of vehicles and in tire development are reviewed. Aerodynamics of Road Vehicles is an indispensable book for vehicle engineers, designers, researchers, and those working in government regulatory agencies. It is also an excellent introduction for students, and an insightful look for the enthusiast at .

The book is based on the MIT graduate-level course “Flight Vehicle Aerodynamics” and has been developed for use not only in conventional classrooms but also in a massive open online course (or MOOC) offered on the pioneering MOOC platform edX. It will also serve as a valuable reference for professionals in the by: ABSTRACT. Drag reduction of road vehicles continues to be the holy grail of aerodynamicists with renewed importance of aerodynamics as OEMs strive to reduce CO 2 and improve fuel economy. New legislation such as Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP) is increasing the emphasis on real world boundary conditions (with moving ground wind tunnel . Examine the latest developments in vehicle aerodynamic development Explore opportunities to network and share experiences around different areas Focus on future challenges and the engineering knowledge and technology required to resolve them Discuss other areas of development including handling and stability, tyre aerodynamics and modelling. The aerodynamics of passenger cars, commercial vehicles, motorcycles, sports cars, and race cars is dealt with in detail, inclusive of systems, testing techniques, measuring and numerical aerodynamics methods and simulations that significantly contribute to vehicle development. Aerodynamics of Road Vehicles is an excellent reference tool and an.

An overview of the physics, concepts, theories, and models underlying the discipline of aerodynamics. This book offers a general overview of the physics, concepts, theories, and models underlying the discipline of aerodynamics. A particular focus is the technique of velocity field representation and modeling via source and vorticity fields and via their sheet, filament, or . Emphasis is given to flow control, to the evolution of flight vehicle shapes as flight speed has increased, and to discoveries that enabled breakthrough developments in flight. The book examines why various equations and technologies were developed; explains major contributors in areas such as vortices and aircraft wakes, drag buildup, sonic.
