Aerodynamic Interaction Of Bluff Bodies With Applications To Sports Aerodynamics

Grant number: LP130100955 | Funding period: 2014 - 2017



Numerical modelling and experiments will be combined by this project to characterise the flow and reduce drag on a set of objects in the wake of another object. The Olympic pursuit cycling team is a typical application, with small improvements leading to major competitiveness gains. Findings will also apply to Paralympic team sports, and potentially transportation.
