Aerodynamics Analysis of Formula One Vehicles

Article of Honda R&D Technical Review F1 Special (The third Era Activities)

Summary

Formula One vehicles are fitted with a variety of aerodynamic devices. This produces complex mutual interference in the air flows around the vehicles, generating highly nonlinear flows. The clarification of these aerodynamic phenomena helps to enable efficient optimization of aerodynamic devices. This paper will provide some examples of findings regarding the air flows around Formula One vehicles obtained using wind tunnels and CFD.
