ISSN: 0148-7191, e-ISSN: 2688-3627
Published February 01, 1966 by SAE International in United States
Annotation ability available
Event: Mid-Year Meeting
Some of the techniques used in wind tunnel testing of automotive vehicle models are discussed. The current problems and unknowns are presented with comparative data when available. Aerodynamic lift is shown to be the most sensitive and uncertain of the aerodynamic components.
