Aerodynamics : CFD
Computional fluid dynamics are becoming more and more important in motorsports, and are already very popular in Formula One. With own models drawn with CAD programs, some simulations were made to show what it is all about.
- CFD discussed by Honda's Henrik Diamant 09-01-2008
Computational Fluid Dynamics is the unsung hero of the Formula One world. While the gargantuan, squillion dollar wind tunnels capture the public imagination, the murky world of CFD barely warrants a mention.
- Aerodynamic study of the CDG concept 02-01-2007
In an attempts to increase overtaking, the FIA proposed the CDG rear wing, a split wing locating behind each rear wheel. As there were discussion whether it would really work, here is a CFD simulation of F1's possible future.
- The FIA's new CDG wing 25-10-2005
In order to encourage overtaking, the FIA initiated a programme of research into improving the aerodynamic performance of a car when trying to overtake. He is a new rear wing proposal to fulfill that aim.
