This in-depth publication explores the need for better near-ground flow simulation of ground vehicles. Partial contents include: the effect of a moving floor on wind-tunnel simulation of road vehicles; a comparison of the ground-plane-suction and moving-belt ground- representation techniques; a discussion of aerodynamic interface effects between a race car and a race track retaining wall (a wind tunnel NASCAR case study); and wind tunnel-to-road aerodynamic drag correlation.
