A Review of Aerodynamic Study for Reduction of Drag Force in Cars in order to Enhance the Performance

Sanket Kulkarni, Gayatri Gandole, Premanand Gaikwad, jaywant N. Yadav


The branch of science devoted to the study of the flow of gases around the solid objects. This is the crucial factor in the performance of the vehicle. This has helped in reshaping the aerodynamical factor of a vehicle, It consists of stability, handling, fuel efficiency. This study concentrates on different aerodynamic drag reduction techniques to reduce the aerodynamic coefficient increase the stability of road vehicle. The aerodynamical addon devices modification has come in the new research. This field is yet to digged up. This field can change our future of transportation.
