THE NEED

Aerodynamic profiles on the cars decide the wind loading and drag of the vehicle at high speed. The main aim of this project is to optimize the spoiler angle of attack, height, and mounting of a spoiler to the vehicle with a suitable bracket.

SOLUTION PROVIDED

We performed CFD simulation to compute airflow separation, area of the low-pressure zone, and the flow characteristics. Spoiler design, height, and angle of attack were optimized to reduce the flow separation, thus, decreasing the overall drag of the system. Based on effective Spoiler design, composite and structural analysis of the spoiler was performed to assess the bending and shear of the spoiler design itself. Along with the optimization of spoiler, design, analysis, and optimization of the mounting the brackets are performed to reduce the overall weight of the component.

AS A RESULT,

It’s found that the total amount of Drag in the form of vertical and Lateral forces are significantly higher at the spoiler region. Hence design and FEA analysis of the mounting bracket is highly critical to keep the spoiler intact with the car’s body. We designed the bracket in such a way that its threshold is far greater than the vertical and lateral forces experienced on the spoiler structure.
