Nice work! I can't wait to see your take on the barge boards. There's so much freedom to shape them and stack multiple elements to your heart's content.

Thanks a lot guys.
The past few mounts were really busy for me and I had no time for modeling.
Soon I will continue with the car for sure and I will post some results.

Well,

The modeling had started again, from the scratch. The inspiration was the MVRC - 2019 and the target is to participate to the last 2 races. Really regret to not started it earlier, but it is what it is.

It is not finished yet, but hopefully it will be ready until the end of this week.

I am sharing the progress until now. The floor is from @machin, hope he doesn't mind to use it as a starting point. :)

Still need to finish the cooling and the rear wing design.

And there she is, my first ever compleed f1 model:

It is pretty basic, and a lot of the surfaces are not with the required quality but lets say that there is a big room for improvement.

Really looking forward for your thoughts :)

Hi All,

Today I've manage to run a cfd only for the front wing. What can I say... this is realy stunning application. I can say that I am totally addicted :)

The model:

The numbers:

Image

For a first ever run I am really happy with the results, but for sure there is a room for improvement.

You can see the speed drop on a certain spaces underneath the wing, which can lead to a flow separation:

Image

And in a cross section We can see that there is na issue with the aerofoil shape on the first and maybe on the second flaps:

The transition between the second and third flap doesn't look good as well

Image
Image

It seems that all this creates unpleasant vortexes behind the wing and possible increase of drag

Image
Image

Anyway I think that there are positive things
For instance the Y250 and endplate vortexes are looking strong, just have to manage to direct them where I want:
