This comprehensive publication reflects the increasing sophistication and progress in vehicle aerodynamic technology. The three areas of technology reviewed are: airflow in vehicle cavities, aerodynamic test techniques, and computational fluid dynamics. Contents include: water flow simulation of automotive underhood airflow phenomena; engine compartment airflow investigations using a laser-doppler-velocimeter; determination of flow velocity distribution in a vehicle interior using a visualization and computation techniques; a calculation method for estimating the transient wind force and moment acting on a vehicle; a zonal method for predicting external automobile aerodynamics; and a grid generating system for automobile aerodynamic analysis.
