Having established world class expertise in advanced winglet technology, with some of the best ex-Boeing aerodynamicists
in the business, Aviation Partners is now ready to apply its patented blended winglet technology to other makes and models of business and transport category aircraft.
The all-new Ford Explorer SUV, 2011 North American Truck of the Year, and the stylish Ford Flex crossover both enjoy improved fuel efficiency from painstaking detail work by designers and aerodynamicists
collaborating in the wind tunnel.
With the ever-increasing sophistication of computational fluid dynamics [CFD], rather dismissively known as "Color For Directors" by some aerodynamicists
, the role of the wind tunnel has been called into question.
Working closely with aerodynamicists
in GM's own wind tunnel to shape the Volt, design and engineering teams developed the most aerodynamic vehicle in Chevrolet's history.
Unlike production programs, which have a longer timeframe, more people involved, and less direct accountability, Nielander worked hand-in-hand with engineers and aerodynamicists
to shape the exterior, make room in the interior, and guarantee that the mechanical package didn't impinge on the occupants.
Designers and aerodynamicists
collaborated to reshape sideview mirrors and harmonize the front air dam with the rear liftgate spoiler to significantly increase fuel efficiency on the highway.
While it's presently in the domain of engineers and aerodynamicists
, they're working on a digital interface for designers so that 3D models will be, in effect, "sculpted" as if they were in clay.
Featuring interviews with coaches, aerodynamicists
, physiologists and Lance himself, as well as incorporating the latest computer-generated imagery, THE SCIENCE OF LANCE ARMSTRONG is an adrenaline-fueled look into his incredible success.
Adhesives allow the aerodynamicists
to create new shapes that are then bonded together, since fastening parts with traditional mechanical methods would be impossible.
We think the combination of the new supercomputing capabilities from Compaq and our experienced team of aerodynamicists
will help us achieve optimal results.
