Description

By: Joseph Katz .

Race Car Aerodynamics Designing for Speed - The book combines clear explanations, illustrations and photos to help the enthusiast understand a complex subject, with invaluable reference material, including equations, for the professional race car engineer.

Race Car Aerodynamics is the first book to summarize the secrets of the rapidly developing field of high-speed vehicle design. Over the past 15 years, author Joseph Katz has been involved with aerodynamic development in the most competitive areas of motorsport today. From Formula One, to Indy Car, Drag and Sedan Racing, this book provides clear explanations for both engineers who wants to improve their design skills and enthusiasts who simply want to understand how their favorite race cars go fast. How aerodynamics wins races. Why downforce is more important than streamlining and drag reduction. Designing wings and venturis -what works and what doesn't. Wind tunnel designs, Methods and results-what you can and cannot believe.

Full definitions of terms, with equations and examples provided for determining key aerodynamic parameters like drag, lift and side-force coefficients, fluid viscosity, or wind-tunnel corrections. Numerous examples using specific race cars, passenger-based prototypes, and open-wheel designs. Special overview section reviews the fundamentals of aerodynamics.
