    «Race Car Aerodynamics» is the first book to summarize the secrets of the rapidly developing field of high-speed vehicle design. Author Joseph Katz provides clear explanations for both the engineer who wants to improve his or her design skills and enthusiasts who simply want to understand how their favorite race cars go fast. This sucks the car to road which results in higher cornering speeds. The total aerodynamic package of the race car is emphasized now more than ever before. Teams that plan on staying competitive use track testing and wind tunnels to develop the most efficient aerodynamic design. The focus of their efforts is on the aerodynamic forces of.

    There is a particular emphasis on various vehicle types (passenger cars, trucks, trains, motorcycles, race cars, etc.). However, the book is focused on cars and trucks, which are the most common vehicles in the speed range in which the study of ground vehicle aerodynamics is beneficial. This is the horizontal part of the aerodynamic force generated by the car as it moves through the air. This force is so great on a F1 racing car that, when the driver comes off the throttle at maximum speed, the car slows down at least as briskly as a road car can brake at maximum effort. Drag Coefficient. Usually shown as Cd or Cx.

Like Anderson's Aerodynamics book for general Aerodynamics, this book is the popular accepted reference point for JUST "Race Car Aerodynamics" Read more One person found this helpfulCited by: Race Car Aerodynamics: Designing for Speed. The first book to summarize the secrets of the rapidly developing field of high-speed vehicle design/5.

Using aerodynamics to improve the acceleration, efficiency and cornering speed of your race car can mean the difference between winning and losing. While the internet does provide some insights, the best and most complete information is available in a number of excellent books on aerodynamic.

The performance of an Race car aerodynamics book race car is greatly influenced by its aerodynamics. Race teams try to improve the vehicle performance by aiming for more levels of downforce. A huge amount of time is spent in wind tunnel and track testing.

Typical wind tunnel testing is carried out in steady aerodynamic conditions and with car static configurations. Race Car Aerodynamics provides a comprehensive guide to how air flows around and through race cars.

It is the most useful book on aerodynamics (of several) I have in my collection and covers nearly everything an amateur designer could want to know about aerodynamics. The book is well organized, moving logically from beginning theory to detailed explanations of aerodynamic devices, their design 5/5.

Nov 21,  · Hello people many people seem very knowledeable here so i thought i'd ask you guys/girls if there is a particular book on aerodynamics that is worth getting. I'm looking for something around £20 and under, i'm really interested in aerodynamics (racing cars. More than the performance of the car, racing is about the performance, preparedness and training of the driver.

In recent years, however, vehicle aero-dynamics gained increased Author: Joseph Katz. Oct 05,  · (Race Car Aerodynamics, Designing for Speed – Joseph Katz) Drag is the resultant of aerodynamic forces that acts in the longitudinal axis of the car, opposing its movement.

This is a crucial element of aerodynamics study, and it is of primary concern in road cars aerodynamic design.Race car aerodynamics is study of the forces and moments created by the interaction of air with a race car. The shape of race cars is intentionally developed in order to control this interaction.

This page is dedicated to gather relevant content related to this subject.Race Car Aerodynamics Gregor Seljak April 8, 1 Introduction First racing cars were primarily designed to achieve high top speeds and the main goal was to minimize the air drag.

But at high speeds, cars developed lift forces, which affected their stability. In order to improve their stability.
