This publication reports on the rapidly-increasing research and development in road vehicle aerodynamics, as the technology becomes solidified as an integral part of vehicle design. Partial contents include: unsteady-wake analysis of the aerodynamic drag of a notchback model with critical afterbody geometry; aerodynamic drag implications of exterior truck mirrors; a review of CFD methods and their application to automobile aerodynamics; measurement of reference dynamic pressure in open-jet automotive wind tunnels; experimental techniques for the aerodynamic development of convertible cars; and more.
