  1. 1. Effect of upstream turbulence on truck aerodynamics

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Mekanisk värmeteori och strömningslära

    Author : Zhivko Nikolov; [2017]
    Keywords : SCANIA; upstream turbulence; truck aerodynamics; Jakob Mann s method;

    Abstract : The aerodynamic team at SCANIA has discovered the need to investigate the effect of the upstream turbulence conditions on the aerodynamics of the trucks. This need comes from the fact that there are differences between the drag coefficients obtained using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and the on-road measurements. READ MORE

  2. 2. Koopman mode analysis of the side-by-side cylinder wake

    University essay from KTH/Mekanik

    Author : Jimmy Röjsel; [2017]
    Keywords : Bluff body; wake flow; Side-by-side cylinder wake; Flip-op instability; Modal analysis; Koopman operator; Koopman mode decomposition;

    Abstract : In many situations, fluid flows can exhibit a wide range of temporal and spatial phenomena. It has become common to extract physically important features, called modes, as a first step in the analysis of flows with high complexity. READ MORE

  3. 3. Motorcycle Cornering Improvement : An Aerodynamical Approach based on Flow Interference

    University essay from KTH/KTH/AerodynamikMekanik

    Author : Vojtech Sedlak; [2012]
    Keywords : aerodynamic; fluid mechanics; interference; blockage; airfoil; wing; bluff body; motorcycle; moto; motorbike; MotoGP; road racing; aerodynamik; fluid mekanik; flöde interferenser; vinge; motorcyckel; MotoGP; roadracing;

    Abstract : A new aerodynamic device, based on flow interference effects, is studied in order to significantly improve the cornering performance of racing motorcycles in MotoGP. After a brief overview on why standard downforce devices cannot be used on motorcycles, the new idea is introduced and a simplified mechanic analysis is provided to prove its effectiveness. READ MORE
