Currently im with a team from Malaysia. Hopefully no one kills me for extracting information from this forum. Credits given of course. But per to say the problem with my country is the lack of local suppliers and manufacturers. Importing parts are very expensive and choices are limited.
I just have a few things that seems to bother my head. Does one use turbulence on purpose to reduce flow separation on cars like this? Like vortex generators etc.
and which is theoretically better. A SST type nose (those pointy nose) or the more bullet like nose? Both seems to give the same Cd.
and one amateur question. how do you read these readings properly? i mean interpretation.
Integrated Drag coefficients
CDx = 4.993419E-01
CDy = 1.809337E-01
CDz = 7.915108E-02
Integrated pressure forces
Fx = -3.342333E-01 N
Fy = -1.211076E-01 N
Fz = 5.297958E-02 N
I've tried googling and researching but this is my first time posting on a forum to ask Hope somebody helps. Seeing all the talks this forum had.
Oh and competing for 2010/2011 comp. Gj basilisk for worlds. I've seen the results not bad. Raluca from my country failed to top overall winner even as knockout champs

Fz = 0.005297958 N
They being the forces in the X,Y & Z directions in your model.
I work with simple CAD/CAM which does not include analysis like that. It is just what I expect those numbers to mean, not what I know they mean.
