  1. 1. Numerical Investigation of Unsteady Crosswind Aerodynamics for Ground Vehicles

    Author : Tristan Favre; Gunilla Efraimsson; Mattias Chevalier; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Aerodynamics; Vehicle Aerodynamics; Unsteady Aerodynamics; Crosswind; Unsteady Crosswind Aerodynamics; Detached-Eddy Simulations; DES; Vehicle engineering; Farkostteknik; Fluid mechanics; Strömningsmekanik;

    Abstract : Ground vehicles are subjected to crosswind from various origins such as weather, topography of the ambient environment (land, forest, tunnels, high bushes...) or surrounding traffic. READ MORE

  2. 2. Unsteady Numerical Simulations of Flow around Heavy Vehicles, Trains and Passenger Cars

    Author : Jan Östh; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Large Eddy Simulation; fluid dynamics; bluff body flows; flow structures; vehicle aerodynamics; flow control; flow physics; truck aerodynamics; train aerodynamics; car aerodynamics;

    Abstract : In this thesis several simulations have been carried out aimed at improving the knowledgeof vehicle aerodynamics and improving the flow around vehicles with respect to theaerodynamic drag. Four flows around different simplified vehicles have been considered. READ MORE

  3. 3. Integrated Duct Aerodynamics

    Author : Elias Siggeirsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; DDES; RANS; CFD; Compressor duct; Spalart-Allmaras;

    Abstract : Air traffic is rapidly increasing, with no sign of slowing down, resulting in increased green-house gases emission. With emission criteria becoming stricter every year, the aircraft design is subjected to continuous improvements. The development of more efficient aircraft engines plays a central role in the strive towards lower emission levels. READ MORE

  4. 4. Aerodynamics of two trucks driving in close-proximity

    Author : Johannes Törnell; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; drag; aerodynamics; cab over engine; inter-vehicle distance; lateral offset; side wind; truck; platooning; yaw; close proximity; wake;

    Abstract : There are several factors driving the development of vehicles with higher efficiency in society, chief among them are the emissions of greenhouse gases and their contribution to global warming. Therefore, there is a strong incentive to improve heavy-duty trucks' energy efficiency, supported by new legislation. READ MORE

  5. 5. Passenger Car Wheel Aerodynamics

    Author : Christoffer Landström; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : CFD; tyres; wind tunnel; Passenger car aerodynamics; ground simulation; wheel rotation; drag; wheels;

    Abstract : Current and future requirements for efficiency force the automotive industry to consider all aspects of reducing the energy consumption of road going vehicles. An important aspect of reducing fuel consumption is reduced aerodynamic drag, which at highway cruising speeds is dominating the total drag force for both cars and heavy goods vehicles. READ MORE
