Description For years, engineers have turned to Aerodynamics of Road Vehicles as their ‘bible’ on this field. The fourth edition continues this tradition.
Much of the material has been substantially revised, and new chapters on wind noise and motorcycles have been added. Aerodynamics of Road Vehicles thoroughly covers the fundamental principles that influence vehicle performance, handling, safety and hhcho. An excellent introduction to the topic for the novice or student and a useful refresher and reference for the expert, the book focuses on: The aerodynamics of passenger cars, commercial vehicles, sports and race cars, and motorcycles are dealt with in detail.
Related fields that are influenced by aerodynamics are also covered, including the effects of aerodynamics on fuel economy, directional stability, engine cooling, and passenger comfort. It is also an excellent introduction for students, and an insightful look for the enthusiast at why vehicles behave as they do.
The book covers aerodynamic principles of: Passenger cars; Commercial vehicles; Sports and race car; Motorcycles. By reading this book, vehicle engineers and designers will be able to: Apply general rules to solve your own design problems; Develop test techniques and design strategies to maximise aerodynamic effectiveness.
