The general problem of ground simulation in wind tunnel testing of automobile models is reviewed. Detailed studies using a fixed and a moving belt ground plane are described and the influences of model bottom detail, cooling system air flow, and ground clearance are evaluated.
The final evaluation compares wind tunnel model results with the full scale vehicle on the road.
