Application of Rapid Prototyping Technologies to Wind Tunnel Testing of High-Performance Vehicles

Application of Rapid Prototyping Technologies to Wind Tunnel Testing of High-Performance Vehicles

Padilha, Bruno Ricardo Massucatto; Barufaldi, Guilherme; Silva, Roberto Gil Annes da; Rodrigues, César Augusto Duarte;

Artigo:

Aerodynamics is a crucial area in high-performance vehicle design. Downforce determines to turn performance and drag limits maximum speed in straight lines. To obtain the best aerodynamic design, engineers resort to many tools, such as computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and multidisciplinary design optimization (MDO), in order to test designs, predict characteristics and optimize shape. However, every design that will be produced has to be validated in wind tunnels, which are employed to evaluate numerical predictions, and to correct aerodynamic elements shape, position, and incidence.
