OptiFlow at SAE’s COMVEC 2019 technical sessions on Aerodynamic drag


One of WABCO OptiFlow’s members will be presenting at the Society of Automotive Engineers [SAE] COMVEC 2019. The event is to be held from September 9-11, 2019 in Indianapolis, IN.

Under the title 'Adaptable aerodynamic surfaces towards reduced drag coefficients of semi-trailers' the presentation will introduce to the work that has been done within the AeroFlex Horizon2020 project.

Among the myriad of adaptable aerodynamics technologies considered; extendable skirts, adaptable boat tails and extendable boat tails will be discussed. To conclude the session the results obtained using Computational Fluid Dynamics and Windtunnel testing will also be presented in comparison.

Location and date:
AERODYNAMICS COMMITTEE: PANEL 4 - DRAG DESIGN; Tuesday, September 10 - 3:30 p.m.
