F1 in schools - Aerodynamics

To learn more about CFD simulations: https://youtu.be/dyiREvdc4Gg F1 in schools STEM challenge is a global competition in which students can design miniature F1 cars to race in straight lines. The cars are propelled by CO2 cartridges. In this video, the Redline Racing team of the Parramatta Marist High School in Sydney explains how the competition works and how they used AirShaper to optimize their design. To apply for the "AirShaper F1 In Schools" package and improve your F1 in schools car design, please visit: https://airshaper.com/f1-in-schools ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The AirShaper videos cover the basics of aerodynamics (aerodynamic drag, drag & lift coefficients, boundary layer theory, flow separation, reynolds number...), simulation aspects (computational fluid dynamics, CFD meshing, ...) and aerodynamic testing (wind tunnel testing, flow visualization, ...). We then use those basics to explain the aerodynamics of (race) cars (aerodynamic efficiency of electric vehicles, aerodynamic drag, downforce, aero maps, formula one aerodynamics, ...), drones and airplanes (propellers, airfoils, electric aviation, eVTOLS, ...), motorcycles (wind buffeting, motogp aerodynamics, ...) and more!
