Taking the Drag Out of the Tour de France
Posted Tue August 16, 2005 @02:01PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
News Desktop Engineering has posted an article on the use of CFD to predict the aerodynamics of Tour de France Team Time Trail competition.
By performing CFD simulations of a nine-man TTT and a single cyclist ITT, it is possible to evaluate the influence of drafting. Although individual cyclists have been subjected to wind-tunnel testing, the sheer size of a nine-cyclist paceline makes physical testing impractical. In the CFD world, entire TTT calculations were, until recently, prohibitively expensive, requiring a great number of computational cells to sufficiently resolve the flow past the line of cyclists.
