Aerodynamic development of Formula Student race car

Abstract [en]

This thesis describes the process of developing the aerodynamics package of

a Formula Student race car with computational  uid dynamics. It investigates

the eects of aerodynamics on the vehicle's behaviour and performance with

regard to the Formula Student competition format. The methods used during

the development are evaluated and put into context by investigating the

correlation between a wind-tunnel experiment of a wing in ground proximity,

and its simulated counterpart. The aerodynamics package consists of an undertray,

a front wing and a rear wing and the report details the stages involved

in optimising these components to achieve the desired results.

Abstract [sv]

Denna avhandling beskriver processen att utveckla ett aerodynamikpaket

för en Formula Student-bil med strömningsmekaniska beräkningar. Den unders

öker eekterna av aerodynamik på fordonets beteende och prestanda med

avseende på tävlingsformatet. De metoder som används under utvecklingen

utvärderas och sätts i sitt sammanhang genom att undersöka hur väl ett vindtunnelexperiment

av en vinge nära marken korrelerar med dess simulerade

motsvarighet. Aerodynamikpaketet består av ett golv, en främre vinge och en

bakre vinge och rapporten detaljerar de steg som är involverade i att optimera

dessa komponenter för att uppnå önskat resultat.
