  10. 10. Aerodynamics of automobiles Reduction of aerodynamic drag  Front  Windshield and A-pillars  Roof  Rear  Side Panels
  11. 11. Aerodynamics of automobiles Reduction of aerodynamic drag Underbody Attachment –front spoiler - rear wing spoiler  Wheels 50% of the DC
  12. 12. History of car body design I. Period: Adaptation of shapes from other fields 1900-1920 1914 – Zeppelin – Alfa Romeo 1913 – Boat – Audi Alpensieger 1899 – Torpedo
  13. 13. History of car body design II. Period: Streamlining 1920-1970 - Adapting the resaults of airplane and airship development 1937 – Tatraplan 1933-Audi 2L and Daimler- Benz 200 Cars based on Pál Járay’s ideas
  14. 14. History of car body design III. Period: Detail optimization 1970-1990 - Tiny changes that make significant resaults
  15. 15. History of car body design IV. Period: Shape optimization 1990- today Designing car body close to the ideal shape, then trying to turn into real vehicle with the least changes possible Lexus LFA Coupe Alfa Romeo Brera
  16. 16. History of car body design Lowering the drag coefficient
  17. 17. History of car body design The first shape-optimized car Audi 100 with Cd 0.3 (1982- 1991)
  18. 18. Top drag coefficients of today’s cars
  19. 19. Today’s most aerodynamic cars in production Mercedes –Benz CLA with Cd 0.22 (2013- present)
  20. 20. Today’s most aerodynamic cars in production Volkswagen XL1 with Cd 0.19 (2013- present)
  21. 21. Conclusion  Drag coefficient depends on many different factors  There are basic principles to reduce aerodynamic drag  There is no one and only solution for optimization  Does not exsist one optimum car body shape  Can reach significant solutions with small changes  Interference occours by modifying In optimisation besides wind tunnel investigations numerical simulation of flow field (CFD) has become more and more important
