Our new head of aerodynamics, Ben Agathangelou, starts next week and in addition we will have two new aerodynamicists
joining us within the next fortnight.
With Mark Handford, the chief aerodynamicist
, and Steve Nichols, the technical director, also in place Russell & Co have achieved a different shape and style car which now boasts its own identity.
A number of feature extraction tools have been or are being developed to locate the following features most important to aerodynamicists
In the past, aerodynamicists
, physicists, and product engineers relied on CAD geometry and manual changes to create new design models.
are aware that many differences exist between the conditions tested in wind-tunnels and those experienced on the road.
have pointed out the advantages of boundary layer control for many years.
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.
, the collaboration with RAND over the coming years will allow us to explore with more freedom solutions that otherwise would remain merely abstract concepts.
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.
The importance of pleasing design could not be emphasized enough, especially for aerodynamicists
who see beauty mainly in the aerodynamic perfection that underlies mere surface shape.
Our team of aerodynamicists
and flight test engineers have a combined experience level of over 250 years working in the field of innovative aviation design concepts.
