Developments in Vehicle Aerodynamics
Wind-tunnel testing, computational fluid dynamic simulations, unsteady flows and aeroacoustics, and aerodynamic design are the overall themes. Within them are considerations of such aspects as the aerodynamic performance of automotive underbody diffusers, accuracy in computational aerodynamics at base and stagnation pressure, a calibration study for front-end cooling airflow, applying composite rating of preference to road and wind noise, experiments in unsteadiness and instability in passenger car aerodynamics, a design-rule base tool for automotive systems design, and a review of the wind conditions experienced by a moving vehicle. The 20 papers are from an international conference in Detroit in February 1998. No index. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
