Due to aerodynamic lift being very sensitive to car body boundary layer, it is thought that the precision of the simulation results for aerodynamic lift would be limited by the reasons mentioned above, while the simulation results of aerodynamic drag usually could meet the request of practice application, testified by the most of cases.
In gasoline vehicles, where the engine and powertrain parts and their cooling modules are usually located under the hood, front-end cooling is one of the major constraints for reducing aerodynamic drag of the vehicle.
