The design executive, for one, took particular notice of the car's aerodynamics and airflow, which is enhanced by the vehicle's shape and vents on its sides. Its pop-up door handles, which are similar to the Tesla Model S, also improve its aerodynamics. As noted in a Motor1 report, the German legacy ...
Despite all the attempts to lower downforce and limit side force, NASCAR has still struggled to generate passing on the intermediate tracks that make up nearly half of the schedule. "Aerodynamics," Keselowski said after the crash. "The cars, side by side, they're not meant to run that way." Kyle Busch won ...
Bontrager has just launched a completely new range of Aeolus carbon wheels.

1,177-hp Zenvo TSR-S offers "brutal" gearshifts and extreme active aerodynamics ... powertrain definitely qualifies as capital "E" Extreme (if you quietly discount the fact that electric hypercars are now making even stupider amounts of power), but the TSR-S also offers a fascinating twist on the aerodynamics of the rear wing.

... 70-80% of the power you put through the pedals is used to overcome the resistance from the wind. This means that being aero is a vital consideration if you're keen to get faster, (along with all that training you're planning). Here are five components that will optimise your own or your bike's aerodynamics.
Boom Supersonic claims the XB-1 is the fastest civil jet in history, and will give them invaluable information about "the forces, temperatures, and aerodynamics at these speeds". Unlike most planes which are built largely from aluminium, the XB-1 is manufactured using ultra-durable carbon composites.
Of course, the fuel or energy efficiency of a vehicle isn't only based on aerodynamics, but since it's what impacts a lot of the exterior design of the car, ... For the Focus, adding wheel covers to the ICE would have even less gains in overall efficiency, because the aerodynamics of the car aren't really the ...
This explains why few ICE vehicles rely on aero type wheel covers. For the EV, the wind resistance becomes the largest loss on the highway at somewhere north of 40% of the total losses. If you can improve the aerodynamics 10%, the range and MPGe will increase by 4% (40% of the total x 10% efficiency improvement).

For most cyclists, an everyday ride can't be pigeonholed as an “aero” or a “climbing” day. We mix in some fast flat roads, some slow climbs, and everything in between. That's why the ...
"With regards to aerodynamics, we tried to retain our concept of the inlets for the radiators, and everybody is copying that, but we tried to make an additional step forward. What we showed today is not the same element as last year, it is something more developed. The strengths are there and we wanted to ...
Ferrari have unveiled the new auto they hope will end Mercedes' dominance of the Formula One world championship. It features Ferrari's traditional red livery, with the colour white mostly absent from this vehicle in contrast to its immediate predecessors. "To stand here now is very special for all of us".
Some Victorians were wary of the railways. First there was the speed. Anything over 30mph and you wouldn't be able to breathe. Then there was the noise. It could be enough to disturb your vision, damage your eyes and turn you completely doolally. And then there were the tunnels! Speed, noise, smoke ...
The reason the aerodynamics wars began was the introduction of winglets to assist with wheelie control. Electronic wheelie control involves interrupting the power which by definition, involves going slower. That's why Ducati tried the winglets to achieve the desired effect with airflow rather than having to ...
The aerodynamics of a skeleton bobsled and rider are complex, and our knowledge of fluid mechanics is far from complete. This creates opportunities for research and development programmes that push the frontiers of our aerodynamic understanding to produce technological innovations that give riders ...
Aerodynamics appear to have been at the forefront of the new design, thanks to the input of Williams' head of aerodynamics Dirk De Beer who helped shape the FW41 alongside Lowe and chief designer Ed Wood. "It is very exciting to be giving everyone the first look at the FW41," commented Lowe.
The team tested their hypothesis and demonstrated a bio-inspired structure that could improve the aerodynamics of cars, drones, planes, and wind turbines. They used micro-CT scanning to image and 3D model the denticles of the shortfin mako, the world's fastest shark; its denticles resemble a trident, due ...
Sharks have been around since before dinosaurs roamed the earth, which has given them plenty of time to perfect the art of aerodynamics. It's no surprise then that sharks, like whales, can teach us a thing or two about more efficiently moving through both water and air. A team of biologists and engineers ...
A study of shark skin has led to a new structure that could one day improve the aerodynamic performance of planes, wind turbines, and cars. skin Denticles. Evolutionary biologists and engineers at Harvard University have found that the composition of shark skin could help improve the aerodynamic ...
Getting more aerodynamic on your bike is the easiest way to increase your average speed while riding, and, as our tests have shown, will help you go faster on nearly all terrain. In this video we give you our four top tips for improving your aerodynamics, helping you to get faster without needing to do any ...
“The FW41 is the product of some great teamwork across the various functions in the organization, including aerodynamics, design, vehicle dynamics, race engineering, systems engineering and manufacturing. The car has many new features, most of which are not all that obvious, but externally the team ...
"These have all been architectural and layout actions aimed at one final objective: that of improving aerodynamics, or at least opening more avenues for aerodynamic performance during the season." But Binotto said Ferrari had not stood still on areas where it had an inherent strength in 2017. "As regards to aerodynamics, ...

I'm all for improving the handling, performance, safety, reliability and efficiency of bikes, cars, whatever – and I think it's safe to say modern bikes excel in all these areas, even though they have “aerodynamics…about where cars were in the 1930s”. Modern bikes also look great for the most part. F1 cars look ...

“We can then take that, run the simulation on it and then understand the aerodynamics for that individual athlete,” says Hart. Although the athletes themselves will return to the wind tunnel multiple times during the design process, these personalised models tell engineers how air flows over each part of the ...
"There is a lot of science behind a suit," said Annick D'Auteuil, an aerodynamics researcher at the NRC. She's spent nearly a decade helping local athletes improve their performance, from alpine skier Dustin Cook, hoping to tweak his form on the ski hill, to long-track speed skater Ivanie Blondin, who needs ...

The very sharks you travel halfway across the world to photograph could hold the key to getting there faster. The aerodynamics offered by tiny tooth-like scales called denticles could revolutionize technologies such as plane design, according to new research. Evolutionary biologists and engineers from ...
Researchers from Harvard University and the University of South Carolina have discovered that incorporating structures modelled on elements of sharks' skin into the design of aerofoils can improve their performance by up to 323%. The scientists focused on 'denticles', thousands of small scales of a ...

For the designers and engineers who spend years crafting Team USA's uniforms to offer both style and extraordinary aerodynamics, the need to keep athletes warm in these extreme temperatures posed an added dimension of difficulty. And Ralph Lauren, the brand outfitting the American team for the ...
However, the team does face an array of challenges getting to the competition, the main being funding. Most of Purdue FSAE's sponsors provide the team with parts or programs, such as Siemens, which helps out the aerodynamics design team. At the same time there are sponsors, like ZF, who give the ...
