Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The drag coefficient is a common metric in automotive design pertaining to aerodynamic effects. As aerodynamic drag increases as the square of speed, a low value is preferable to a high one. With about 60% of the power required to cruise at highway speeds being used to overcome aerodynamic effects minimizing drag translates directly into improved fuel efficiency. For the same reason aerodynamics are of increasing concern to truck designers, where greater surface area presents substantial potential savings in fuel costs.show more
