The extra lift and reduced drag cuts back on the quantity of fuel that the engines must burn. If the jet were built today from standard aluminum alloys it could provide a 50% reduction in fuel use, according to the MIT designers; a low-mass polymer-composite version could give 70% efficiency gains. Although this book is intended mainly to introduce senior undergraduate and beginning graduate students to the study of ground vehicles, it should also interest engineers and researchers in the vehicle industry. This book deals with the theory and engineering principles of nonguided ground vehicles, including road, off-road, and air-cushion.

This chapter examines the loads on ships and offshore structures. Continuation of improvements to the computational speeds of computers makes nonlinear time domain methods more applicable to the design process. The wind resistance of a vehicle’s design elements. Aerodynamic vehicles claim to offer increased performance and reduced wind noise while moving. See Coefficient of Drag. Agent.

The vehicle lands with its full weight on one of the two A-pillars, which may only deform slightly if the vehicle is to pass the test. And the new SLK-Class came through this roof-drop test with.

Get this from a library. Aerodynamic drag reduction tests of a box-shaped vehicle: final report. [Randall Lee Peterson; Doral R Sandlin; United States.

National Aeronautics and Space Administration.]. Aerodynamic drag tests were performed on a tractor-trailer combination and a box-shaped ground vehicle using the coast-down method on a smooth, nearly level runway.

The tractor-trailer tests included an investigation of drag reduction add-on devices that are commercially available or under development. There is drag, but mainly caused by friction between the layers of air moving past one another at different speeds.

Notice how the air becomes more turbulent behind the car and vortices start to occur in the wake. Bottom: Form drag: A box-shaped vehicle (such as a large truck) makes no attempt to divert air around itself.

The drag coefficient expresses the effect of vehicle shape independently of any other factor, so that the $$C_{D}$$ value for a car of a given shape remains the same if the car is doubled in size, for.

Aerodynamic Drag Scoping Work. SciTech Connect. Voskuilen, Tyler; Erickson, Lindsay Crowl; Knaus, Robert C. This memo summarizes the aerodynamic drag scoping work done for Goodyea. In order to gain experience with the towing tank as a tool for vehicle aerodynamic studies, preliminary experiments with a bluff body with out any ground effect were carried out.

The box-shaped body corresponds to a simplified European trailer at a scale of For trucks, a reduction of approximately 10 percent in drag results in a fuel savings of about 5 percent, or nearly gallons per year.

One TUSK concept uses an axial-flow turbine mounted on a rigid underwater kite to extract power from an ocean current or tidal flow. A second concept removes the turbine from the kite, and instead generates power by transmitting hydrodynamic forces on the kite through the flexible.

The focus of the work is on the evaluation, development and integration of a robust actuator system for three-dimensional flow control of a blown Coanda flap to improve the high lift system of commercial aircraft. As part of the research work presented, the system is integrated into a wind tunnel model in order to influence the flow across the entire width of the model.

The system developed is. That, too, happens nominally. MASCOT, the box-shaped instrument rack made of sturdy carbon bre composite measuring 30 x 20 x 20 centimetres and weighing just 10 kilograms, came to a standstill.

The gravitational pull on Ryugu is only about one sixty-thousandth of that on Earth, which means that MASCOT weighs less than one gram there. An electromechanical system is described that uses magnetic fields to induce eddy currents and generate lift.

A magnet configuration that can be employed in the system is illustrated. The magnet configuration can be used to generate lifts and / or thrusts. Lift and thrust predictions for various magnet configurations are provided.
