Improving MotoGP aerodynamics using CFD simulations - The Dotto Creations - AirShaper MotoGP Challenge - Aero Update 2 https://www.dottocreations.com/ https://www.airshaper.com/ General information: https://airshaper.com/motogp-aerodynamics-challenge Aero update 2 (with wings on the bodywork): https://app.airshaper.com/projects/dotto-creations-airshaper-motogp-challenge-aero-update-2 Aero update 3: https://app.airshaper.com/projects/dotto-creations-airshaper-motogp-challenge-aero-update-3 For the third aero update, we had modified: - the tire cross section - aerodynamic cover of the front suspension - central air intake - tail section Results: - Less aerodynamic drag! - Slightly less downforce, but manageable - More attached flow on the bodywork ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 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!
