Air Resistance: The Invisible Enemy in Vehicle Design
Vehicle designers, no matter if they specialize in motor sport cars, trucks, common vehicles or even motorbikes, have to fight every day with an invisible enemy—air resistance. To put it simply, when a body moves, the air around it generates a resistance in the opposite direction of the movement. For vehicles, air resistance affects the comfort of the passengers, the fuel consumption, the stability, and many other performance factors.
WIND TUNNELS & AIR RESISTANCE
The Introduction of Wind Tunnels in Vehicle Design
These are still fairly recent developments, however. Before the 1980's, a streamlined vehicle design was restricted to racing and high-end sports cars until the introduction of wind tunnel testing, which brought aerodynamically optimized consumer vehicles to the market. Wind tunnels soon became one of the most important tools to improve vehicle aerodynamics.
In a wind tunnel, the prototype of the vehicle is fixed in place as a stream of air is blown towards it to simulate the airflow that the vehicle would encounter when driven on a real road. The amount of generated drag is then measured to estimate the drag coefficient and assess the overall aerodynamic performance of the vehicle.
