Abstract

The modern day design of vehicles, especially in the racing industry involve a great deal of air flow study. This study shows that drag force adversely affects the forward motion of the car and that there is a difference in the pressure between the air flowing above and below the car. This produces forces along the vertical axis. Aerodynamic forces acting on a car greatly reduces its efficiency. If the car is redesigned to optimise these forces it could produce better results. This paper discusses various techniques that have been used to redesign and optimise the aerodynamics of a model radio control race car.
