Aerodynamics

Aerodynamics Members

Aerodynamics plays a fundamental role, it is the science that studies objects moving through air; in this case, air is considered as a compressible fluid. Aerodynamics is considered one of the most important factor that affects the performance of a race car. At Swansea University, we work closely with our sponsors and professors using the best software packages available. For instance, the diffuser on the underbody of a car guides the incoming air at the rear upwards, this creates a suction effect towards the floor therefore creating more downforce; by using ANSYS fluent, we are able to improve the air flow for our race car.
