    AIMS AND CONTENT

    LEARNING OUTCOMES

    The student will learn the fundamentals of road-vehicles aerodynamics based on bluff bodies aerodynamics. The effects of the vehicle design and shape on the aerodynamic performance and loads will be discussed. The importance of the aerodynamic analysis for the vehicle dynamics and for the vehicle handling will be stressed.

    AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

    Knowledge on the aerodynamic issues related to the road vehicle design and development

    Knowledge on the aerodynamic effects that are involved into the dynamic analysis of the vehicle

     

    TEACHING METHODS

    Lectures

    Seminars and practical applications on CFD for vehicle aerodynamics
