A number of feature extraction tools have been or are being developed to locate the following features most important to aerodynamicists.
Aerodynamicists are aware that many differences exist between the conditions tested in wind-tunnels and those experienced on the road.
Auto GCAS was initially masterminded by five computer scientists, who were also aerodynamicists, at the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) at Wright Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio.
Boeing aerodynamicists used advanced computational fluid dynamics to combine rake tip technology with a dual feather winglet concept into one advanced treatment.
Standing within the Drivability Test Facility in Allen Park, Michigan, which is managed by Jacobs Technology (www.jacobstechnology.com), Koester points out that the Flex posed a particular challenge to the aerodynamicists, as the concept vehicle, the Ford Fairlane, which had been shown at auto shows and elsewhere, had built up a fan following: "Everyone liked the style and the shape, so we couldn't change it." He says, ''We had to keep the boxiness," adding, "The doors and the roof shape--we couldn't touch that." Rich Gressens, chief designer of the Flex, stands nodding nearby.
As aerodynamicists, the collaboration with RAND over the coming years will allow us to explore with more freedom solutions that otherwise would remain merely abstract concepts.
Gradually, aerodynamicists discovered that data from carefully instrumented aircraft corroborated wind tunnel findings.
Only a handful of in-house engineers, scientists, aerodynamicists and blue-sky boffins have been allowed near "Das 1-Liter Auto", never mind being allowed to touch it, sit in it or drive the damn thing.
