Investigation on Aerodynamics of Super–Effective Car for Drag Reduction.
MetadataShow full item record
This paper focuses on shape optimization of a car body to be used in Shell Eco Marathon race. The work consists of the review of aerodynamic performance for currently used shapes, definition of the design constraints for the vehicle and recommendations for the final shape to be used in the oncoming Shell Eco Marathon editions. The designs are inspired by winning models, but adjusted to Iron Warriors technology and scaled accordingly to the driver’s space requirements. A range of velocities from 20 km/h to 45 km/h with 5 km/h interval is tested, giving idea about the full model performance. Results are then compared and the best solutions, concerning the coefficient and parameter taking into account the frontal area influence are recommended.
