Progress in Vehicle Aerodynamics and Thermal Management
Proceedings of the 8th FKFS-Conference
The importance of individual mobility, especially by means of automotive vehicles, has grown considerably in the past up to the present status and it is now – after exactly 125 years of successful development – an inevitable part of our daily life. Simultaneously, due to an increased awareness of damage to the environment and to the pressure imposed by legislation, reducing the fuel consumption of passenger cars is one of today´s most urgent issues that need to be addressed by engineers.
The authors are a team of experts from the automobile industry, code developers and vendors, research organizations, and academia. All have contributed substantially to vehicle aerodynamics and specifically to numerical methods, and are currently active in the subject they are presenting.
