Abstract

One of the major factor that determine fuel efficiency of a ground vehicle is its aerodynamic drag. Here interest was to study the aerodynamic performance of car geometry for both hatchback and sedan type vehicles and by changing their different parameters Drag force and Lift force were calculated by using CFD Software OpenFOAM. This study involves variation of geometrical features, such as hood angle, wind screen angle, rear angle, and corner radius. Car geometries were created in OpenFOAM itself by using blockMesh. Meshing was done by using snappyHexMesh. Total 14 sedan geometries were used.Comparison was made to find the geometry with least drag

Key Words

OpenFOAM, Drag force, Lift force, blockMesh, snappyHexMesh
