Aerodynamic Drag Reduction

Airflow Sciences has performed numerous wind tunnel and CFD studies of vehicles with the primary goal of drag reduction. For race cars, a balance between minimum drag (for speed) and maximum down force (for traction) is the key goal. For passenger cars, trains, and trucks, low drag means better fuel economy.
