Why we should go for Aerodynamic Designs ?

AERODYNAMIC TESTING

A very wide topic yet I am going to discuss it in a very concise way, so lets begin.Aerodynamic analysis is used in reducing the fluid’s negative drag effects that may severely damage the structure of your design and this is most significant reason to go for aerodynamically designed structure.When you do aerodynamic design (AD) you are actually making your project more reliable and strong as compared to some random design. You can easily see the effect of AD in modern F1 race cars for example the wings are used in modern F1 cars to give it negative lift hence increasing the traction to the race track which results in higher steering stability; this concept was totally absent before 1960s. I will discuss more about race car wing aerodynamics in next post.

Apart from F1 racing AD has become a vital component of modern automotive and aircraft industry. Hence the new technical field “Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)” is growing exponentially across the globe.
In subsequent posts I will be going deeper in aerospace and CFD concepts. Hope you will enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚
