AERODYNAMICS OF A CAR

Updated: Oct 28, 2021


HISTORY OF AERODYNAMICS


• Early 1920s engineers began to consider automobile shape in reducing aerodynamics drag at higher speed.


• 1950s German and British automotive engineers analyze the effect of drag on high performance vehicles.


Late 1960s engineers began to design roadways to consider the speed effects of aerodynamics drag produced sound levels.

DRAG COEFFICIENT


• Common measure in automotive design.


• It impacts the way automobile passes through surrounding airs.


• Reducing drag coefficient improves the performance of the vehicle.


DOWNFORCE IN AERODYNAMICS


• It describe the downward pressure created by aerodynamics character of car.


• It allows to travel fast through the corners.


AERODYNAMICS DEVICES


• Scoops

• NACA Duct

• Spoilers

• Wings





WORLD’S MOST AERODYNAMIC PRODUCTION CAR

The Electric MERCEDES EQS is the world’s most aerodynamic production car. It drag coefficient is 0.20 which beats TESLA model S and Lucid Air.
