The image above highlights the main vortical structures (swirling flow) generated by the front wing. Aerodynamicts will meticulously optimise the vortex strength, placement, and interaction with one another to manipuate the flow around the rest of the car. Vortex flow management is now one of the key aspects in designing a successful Formula 1 car. .. read more →

Secrets of a Formula 1 Front Wing

The front wing of a modern Formula 1 car is a marvel of aerodynamic engineering and ingenuity. It is the result of fifty years of mechanical evolution, and in this case, it is the survival of the fastest. read more →

In March 2016, TotalSim presented the results of their Niche Vehicle Network project at the annual symposium. The project was called AERO-P (Aerodynamic Efficiency Requirements & Optimisation Project) and was carried out with partners Ariel and Delta Motorsport with funding from a grant from the NVN. The project was looking at active and passive aerodynamic devices for.. read more →
