Nose Design for Formula Student Vehicle with Aerodynamic Components
Abstract: The paper describes the nose design of a Formula student race car. Aerodynamic package of the car is designed to produce maximum downward force within the acceptable limits of increased drag and reduced top speed. Nose is not an aerodynamic component though it plays an important role as it is the first body part which encounters air. The design is made to use optimum benefit with its shape. This paper gives detailed information about design considerations that are considered to obtain maximum benefits for the performance of a car on track. Computational fluid dynamic (CFD) analysis results, static data, graph related to analysis are also described in this paper. The result of latest design is compared with the previous year design result to quantify the improvement. By performing several changes as per the external flow analysis, we were able to accomplish the desired result. This paper will assist you to achieve the nose design with less drag and maximum possible downforce.
