Aerodynamic Analysis on a Car Profile

M. Mahesh Babu, M. Rajkumar Reddy, K. Krishna


Now a days automobile industry is facing one of the major problem i.e. fuel crunch. In order to utilize the fuel effectively, the power losses due to various factors such as friction loss, aerodynamic effects, has to be reduced. This project mainly deals with engine losses due to aerodynamic effect of car profiles. TATA INDICA car has been selected for Aerodynamic Analysis. A scale model of 1:16 car was made and tests in the wind tunnel are conducted. The coefficient of drag was calculated for various wind velocities. .
