Abstract :

Now a day’s formula vehicle becomes very familiar to every one due to peoples having so much crush and passion on Racing and Automobiles. Aerodynamics plays a pulsating role in engine performance and efficiency of the vehicle , for that designer should consider two things in mind, the aerodynamic shape of the vehicle and the aerodynamic force experienced by the vehicle while vehicle in motion. To get maximum performance of the vehicle we need know the aerodynamics forces acting on the vehicle and how to utilize those forces for increasing the performances and stability. In this paper the drag reduction for a formula vehicle is analysed by streamlined flow over the frontal area. In order to achieve the stability and drag reduction spoiler is fixed on the vehicle at rear area for variousangles of attack from -100to100 and the vehicle is analysed for various drift angles from (00to350). For stabilizing the vehicle we need to find at which angle the vehicle reduce less drag and more downforce for stability. The reduction in Drag will reduce the fuel consumption, increase vehicle performance like increasing top speed, by this vehicle leads to overtaking during race. Based on the grid independent study numerical simulation was carried out for various turbulence models with unstructured polyhedral mesh. The modelling of vehicle is done by using CATIA V5R18 and the numerical analysis of vehicle is being accomplished by the CFD commercial software (STAR-CCM+).
