Design of Light Weight Spoiler for Efficient Aerodynamic Performance of a Vehicle

Mahindra & Mahindra, Ltd.-Praveen Kumar, Aditya Pandey, Vivek KV Shenoy, BalaChandar R, Ayan Chakraborty
Published 2019-10-11 by SAE International in United States
The spoiler is functional as well as aesthetic part fitted on the vehicles to improve the vehicle aerodynamic performance and better aesthetic appeal. The improvement of aerodynamics performance of the vehicle at higher speeds is achieved by reducing the overall vehicle coefficient of drag. This helps in better handling and improved fuel efficiency of the vehicle thus contributing to development of greener vehicle.In this project, our main focus is to reduce overall vehicle coefficient of drag, Design a light weight spoiler and improve the vehicle aesthetic appearance.

Prediction of Mirror Induced Wind Noise Using CFD-FEM Approach

Mahindra & Mahindra, Ltd.-Swamy Mukkera, Aditya Pandey, Kodali Ajay Krishna, Sanjeev Patil, P L N Prasad
Published 2017-01-10 by SAE International in United States
Wind noise is becoming important for automotive development due to significant reductions in road and engine noise. This aerodynamic noise is dominant at highway speeds and contributes towards higher frequency noise (>250Hz). In automotive industry accurate prediction and control of noise sources results in improved customer satisfaction. The aerodynamic noise prediction and vehicle component design optimization is generally executed through very expensive wind tunnel testing. Even with the recent advances in the computational power, predicting the flow induced noise sources is still a challenging and computationally expensive problem. A typical case of fluid-solid interaction at higher speeds results into broadband noise and it is inherently an unsteady phenomenon. To capture such a broad range of frequency, Detached Eddy Simulation (DES) has been proven to be the most practical and fairly accurate technique as sighted in literature. Present work talks about the application of Detached Eddy Simulation (DES), as a computationally faster and cheaper method for predicting the flow and sound generation. In the present case a mirror mounted on SUV has been investigated numerically using…
