Aerodynamics of Vehicle Design


Aerodynamics is one of the old areas of interest for many engineers and scientists. This subject has been studied for a very long time and a lot of literature is available. It is very difficult for a beginner to streamline his/her learning process as everything looks interesting. 

Do you know, the wings on the F1 car, at the front and the rear are placed strategically to create downforce in order to prevent the car from flying. As the F1 cars have the power to weight ratio of approx 1200 hp per ton. The front wing alone has the ability to generate enough downforce to counter the weight of the rear and has been designed to withstand 400 kg of weight. 

In this course on aerodynamics study of vehicles, we will be taking a look at the various interesting similar case studies and understand the concept of drag reduction. Answer questions like - How does the ground clearance affect the performance of the car in terms of aerodynamics, and how has Tesla built the most aerodynamic efficient electric vehicle

This course will take you through the process of calculating aerodynamic drag and lift forces theoretically and also on the basis of the simulation, and make you understand the application of different equations for different environments. 

Who can attend? 

1. Entrepreneurs who are looking to set up their industry or startup related to EV. 

2. Graduates or postgraduates looking to improve their resume and land a job in EV. 

3. Professionals who are looking for a job change.

4. Aspiring engineer or motorsports enthusiast, looking to improvise the design and performance of the vehicle.


Ground Effect and Vehicle Design

The ground clearance of the vehicle plays a major role in the overall performance of the vehicle. Although most of the performance-oriented cars have low ground clearance in order to maintain low C.G., that also gives them a good advantage aerodynamically. Here we will be comparing the ground effect for the same vehicle design. 

Drag Reduction - 

As the name suggests here we will be studying how the form and shape of the body define the drag coefficient. Understand the different ways in which the drug can be reduced. This will be majorly done by studying the evolution of design over years and how it has affected aerodynamics performance. We will be taking a brief look at some of the iconic designs. 


Theoretical vs Simulated Drag - 

Calculating the drag force of the 2 wheeler and 4 wheeler vehicle. This will be done in two stages - first will be the theoretical approximation method, where we calculate by the traditional hand calculated method. The second will be - simulated drag, where we use CFD to understand and calculate the drag of the vehicle.

Amazing course full of very useful information.

AMOL SONAWANE - Wed, 28-Apr-2021

Trainers knowledge was excellent. I found out this program has uniqueness that you will not found out anywhere else. Highly reccommended.

Riti Aggarwal - Wed, 28-Apr-2021

Best course I have ever done.

Ravichandran C. - Wed, 28-Apr-2021

This course was mind boggling. I never knew that changing the ground clearance could also effect the aerodynamic performance in such drastic manners. I always thought it was always just about redirecting the air, but it was way more than that. I have already recommended this course to my friends. Thank you sir for clearing my concepts on this subject.

Budh Preet Arora - Wed, 28-Apr-2021

Somehow i am totally satisfied with this course that i tried in ISIEINDIA because through this course i understood that what i need to improve and where i am good at.

Akky Reddy - Wed, 28-Apr-2021
