In order to solve the flutter problem in (1), the determination of the unsteady aerodynamic force due to elastic motion in a discrete frequency domain is essential to us.
"The development of the XKR-S GT demanded an uncompromised approach to enhance aerodynamic downforce, with complementary suspension changes to maximise high-speed cornering ability.
These simulations and wind tunnel tests resulted in a tire design that reduces the aerodynamic drag on a vehicle.
The new regulations seek to simplify the front wing so the aerodynamic losses caused by following a car are reduced, making it easier drivers to follow each other thanks to the car in front encountering greater drag and the car behind receiving less turbulent airflow to its own aerodynamic surfaces.
Many researchers have exerted considerable efforts to reduce automotive aerodynamic drag using flow control of the rear wake.
"Whilst the FIA accepts that teams will legitimately design the mirrors, housings and mountings to minimise any negative aerodynamic effects they may cause, we believe that any aerodynamic benefits should be incidental, or at least minimal," the statement read.
Duncan Koerbel, Chief Technology Officer (CTO), Suzlon Energy, said "The SB 63 blade is the longest and most efficient aerodynamic blade Suzlon has ever produced.
[8] had shown the significant aerodynamic drag reduction at lower vehicle separation distance in single-lane traffic.
Although a significant progress has been made for the unsteady aerodynamic ROMs, almost all aforementioned ROMs are only valid for a set of fixed flight parameters.
Wind tunnel investigations on car-body aerodynamic lift have been performed by Joel A.
The company calls this new helicopter 'Racer' and says it features an aerodynamic configuration capable of cruise speeds up to 400kmh / 250mph.
The drag effect of roughness elements is very important for urban mesoscale numerical models and it is usually parameterized using an aerodynamic roughness length.
