Aerodynamics

This team is engaged with the design and development of the whole aerodynamic package of the race car. An efficient aerodynamic package is the one which produces high downforce and low drag levels, achieving an ideal air flow distribution. This package includes the rear wing, the front wing, the diffuser, the sidepods and the nose. All these car parts must comply with the rules of Formula Student, thus there are some important limitations to be taken in mind throughout the designing and manufacturing process. To achieve this, and before the final decisions are taken, several simulations are performed and various alternatives are tested for suitability.
