kit is to be used on 53-foot dry-van truck load, refrigerated truck load and other long-haul and super-regional applications.
Based on the theory of the aircraft aerodynamic
lift, the steady-state theory of automobile aerodynamic
lift suggests that the air flowing velocity through the upper is faster than the bottom because the upper surface of car-body is longer than the bottom surface.
Although the drag coefficient is still widely used as a key performance metric of aerodynamic
bodies, the number alone hardly represents the real aerodynamic
efficiency, such as actual energy consumption due to aerodynamic
Our collaboration with FlowBelow to offer more aerodynamic
options for our customers will help further enhance the performance of our most fuel-efficient vehicles.
Reductions in fuel consumption displayed a strong relationship to vehicle speed, with aerodynamic
improvements demonstrating a maximum reduction of fuel consumption of nine (9) percent relative to the baseline at 62 miles per hour.
The low fuel consumption is largely the result of a massive 40% improvement in the vehicle's aerodynamic
profile, including aerodynamically optimised chassis side-skirts across the tractor and trailer.
Conventional roof fairings, in contrast, achieve aerodynamic
efficiencies simply by maximising airflow over smooth, closed surfaces.
The study car switches automatically from design mode to aerodynamic
mode when the vehicle reaches a speed of 80km/h (50mph) , whereby numerous aerodynamics
measures alter the shape of the vehicle.
Re-profiled low temperature radiator ducts seamlessly flow into the leading edge of the aggressively flared front wheel-arches, while the active aerodynamic
flaps are retained from the McLaren P1 in the floor ahead of the front wheels.
The Hypersonic Inflatable Aerodynamic
Decelerator, or HIAD, is being developed by NASA's Langley Research Center to decelerate spacecraft from the hypersonic speeds at which they travel when in space as they enter planetary atmospheres.
London, April 22 ( ANI ): Students from Liverpool University are in the process of making a bicycle, which would be encased in an aerodynamic
outer shell, at 90mph.
and suspension changes, as well as the addition of carbon ceramic brakes, have combined to give the XKR-S GT race-car inspired connected feel and braking performance.
Cabs that are rounded to be more aerodynamic
announced today that it has developed tire design technology that lowers aerodynamic
18 September 2012 - Belgian WABCO Holdings Inc (NYSE:WBC), which makes electronic, mechanical and mechatronic products for commercial vehicles, said on Tuesday that it had bought Dutch automotive aerodynamic
solutions provider Ephicas for an undisclosed amount.
