I am making a F1 front wing following the 2018 technical regulation to evaluate its aerodynamics in CFD for my end-of-degree project. I am here to ask if you can help me, because i have a problem with the endplate and tyre damage rule.
The problem is that to achieve the 3.3.4 rule(95 000mm^2) I have to use almost all the visible parts I have in side view, so to satisfy the 3.3.5 rule I should have to make the 4 last flaps with a minimum width of 10mm, which mess up the aerodynamics.
Ahead of the front wheel centre line and between 760mm and 850mm from the car centre plane there must be bodywork with a projected area of no less than 95,000mm2 in side view.
3.3.5 Tyre damage
In order to prevent tyre damage to other cars, any bodywork outboard of the most inboard part of the bodywork used to define the area required by Article 3.3.4, and which is more than 450mm ahead of the front wheel centre line, must be at least 10mm thick (being the minimum distance when measured normal to the surface in any direction) with a 5mm radius applied to all extremities.
In addition, the leading 30mm of this bodywork must be of prescribed laminate, details of this laminate may be found in the Appendix to the Technical Regulations.
So my question is, do anyone know how are the teams fulfilling this 2 rules?
PD: Apologize me if this shouldn't be here
