Automobile Aerodynamics

Automobile aerodynamics has a significant effect on overall fuel consumption by affecting the amount of drag force the vehicle experiences traveling through the air. An efficient design capable of reducing this drag force requires a profound understanding of fluid motion around solid bodies, which needs the state of art experimental and numerical methods. At FCAR we are capable of performing highly accurate wind tunnel design and testing. On the numerical side working with world’s most advanced CFD computer programs paves the way for best aerodynamic designs.
