2. CONTENTS • Introduction • Motivation • Regimes of External Flow • Profile Drag • Minimizing Drag on a LMV • Expression For Drag Force • Stream-lined and Bluff Body • Components of Drag • Thrust Vs Speed of Car • Geometry generation in pro/e wildfire • Analysis in CFD Tutor 1.1 • Calculations and Result • Limitations • Conclusion • References

3. INTRODUCTION • Decreasing the fuel consumption of road vehicles. • Drag is one of the most important issues when it comes to Aerodynamics design of road vehicles

4. MOTIVATION • Designing a vehicle with a minimized drag resistance provides economy and performance advantages. • The main motivation for reducing drag resistance is: • Fuel consumption reduction • Performance increasing

5. REGIMES OF EXTERNAL FLOW FLOW REGIMES AROUND AN IMMERSED BODY

6. PROFILE DRAG • Pressure drag • Friction drag Profile drag = Pressure drag + Friction drag PRESSURE DRAG AIRFLOW ORIENTATION

7. FRICTION DRAG AIRFLOW ORIENTATION

8. Expression For Drag Force • The Drag force value for a moving vehicle is given by the following expression. DF =1/2 A ρ CD V2 where , CD is the drag coefficient A is the projected frontal area of the vehicle ρ is the density of air V is the speed of the vehicle relatively to the air

9. STREAM-LINED AND BLUFF BODY

10. MINIMIZING DRAG ON A LMV(CAR) SHAPE OF VEHICLE’S BODY

11. DRAG COMPONENTS

12. THRUST Vs SPEED OF CAR

13. GEOMETRY GENERATION IN PRO/E WILDFIRE DIMENSIONS : OVERALL LENGH 3335 mm OVERALL WIDTH 1440 mm 2D SKETCH OF MARUTI 800

14. ANALYSIS IN CFD TUTOR 1.1 PRE- PROCESSING IN CFD TUTOR 1.1 Grid Generation for Maruti 800

15. PROCESSING OPERATIONS IN CFD TUTOR 1.1 Pressure distribution along the body of car

16. Temperature Distribution along the car

17. Velocity Distribution in X-direction of the Car

18. Velocity Distribution in Y-direction of the Car

19. POST PROCESSING OPERATION IN CFD TUTOR 1.1 Pressure Distribution along the shape of car

20. Velocity Distribution in X-direction

21. CALCULATIONS AND RESULT Drag Force, DF = 1/2 A ρ CD V2 ------------------------------ ----I Pressure Drag, P = ∆P * A ------------------------------------------II Equating Equation I and II, we get ∆P * A = 1/2 A ρ CD V2 Therefore, CD = 2 ∆P/ ρ V2 --------------------------------------III For Mach No. = 0.05 (60 Km/hr) Pmax = 1.0669 *105 Pa Pmin = 1.0086* 105 Pa ∆P= 5830 Pa ρ = 1.125 kg/m3 Vmax = 1.246 m3/ s Put the values in equation III, we get CD = 0.667

22. LIMITATIONS • Space Constraint • Styling may be the most flagrant example: Consumers/buyers always seek for a certain ‘look'. This concept is today very different from the aerodynamically ‘ideal’ car. • Drag and Lift Relation

23. CONCLUSION • Smooth vehicle shape, rounded corners. • Tapered rear end. • Minimized body seams. • Substitution of rear view mirrors with Cameras. • Smooth underbody.
