The future of supercar aerodynamics

Over the past year, we have seen first indications of what the next crop of hypercar designs will look like. Among these are the Koenigsegg Regera, the Aston Martin AM-RB 001 (designed by the legendary Adrian Newey) and the Nio EP9 fully electric supercar. What makes these interesting is their radically different aerodynamic design philosophies, which take advantage of packaging possibilities bestowed by new, partially or fully electric powertrain configurations.

Aerodynamic crossing tramways in tunnel

Aerodynamic crossing tramways in tunnel by CFD

Alstom designs and manufactures a wide range of trains. The aerodynamic specific topic of tunnel entry and crossing trains in tunnel is an important design topic for high speed train in terms of tympanic comfort and structure load because of complex pressure waves.

Wiper HSQ performance for passenger cars using CFD

At high vehicle speeds, the wiper assembly can be lifted off from the windshield due to wiper aerodynamics thereby causing the underperformance of wiper function.
