This book covers hree main areas of aerodynamics: wind-tunnel testing, applications of computational fluid dynamics, and unsteady aerodynamics and aeroacoustics. Contents include: the influence of ground simulation on the aerodynamics of a simple car model; effect of cross-winds on motor car engine cooling; effect of exit plane boundary conditions on time accurate computations; aeroacoustics development at pininfarina; the sideways dynamic force on passenger cars in turbulent winds; analysis of vehicle wind throb using CFD and flow visualization; coast down method in time-distance variables; concurrent CFD analysis for development of rear spoiler for hatchback vehicles; and vehicle flow measurement and CFD analysis for wind noise assessment.
