702: Vehicle

Steady state fluid flow (CFD) analysis of a vehicle moving at two different speeds to find the drag of the vehicle at these speeds. A mesh and domain sensitivity study was also completed to ensure that the mesh and domain size used would not affect the results accuracy. As expected the higher speed produced a higher drag force. Recommendations were given on how to reduce the drag force of the vehicle to increase vehicle efficiency.
