Quatrième de couverture

Race far Aerodynamics is the first book to summarize the secrets of the rapidly developing field of high-speed vehicle design. Over the past 15 years, author Joseph Katz has been involved with aerodynamic development in the most competitive areas of motor sport today. From Formula One, to Indy Car, Drag and Sedan Racing, this book provides clear explanations for both engineers who wants to improve their design skills and enthusiasts who simply want to understand how their favorite race cars go fast.

* How aerodynamics win races.

* Why down force is more important than streamlining and drag reduction.

* Designing wings and ventures-what works and what doesn't.

* Wind tunnel designs, methods and results-what you can and cannot believe.

* Full definitions of terms, with equations and examples provided for determining key aerodynamic parameters like drag, lift and side-force coefficients, fluid viscosity, or wind-tunnel corrections.

* Numerous examples using specific race cars, passenger-based prototypes, and open wheel designs.

* Special overview section reviews the fundamentals of aerodynamics.

Ce livre permet au lecteur d'acquérir les bases de l'aérodynamique dans le sport automobile. L'approche de l'auteur est globale et permet à tous les types de lecteur de s'approprier les connaissances énoncées. Pour ceux qui souhaitent affiner leurs connaissances, l'auteur nous oriente à la fin de chaque chapitre vers des ouvrages plus specialisés.
Ce livre m'a été conseillé par un aérodynamicien en Formule 1 et peut servir de référence aux passionnés de la discipline reine du sport automobile.

En anglais mais une excellente base sur l'aérodynamique des voitures de course.

Explique enfin clairement le rôle d'un diffuseur, l'influence de la balance aérodynamique et quelques règles importantes de l'aérodynamique.

Seul bémol, écrit il y a quelques années donc pas à la page sur les sidepod vanes ou les diffuseurs soufflés.

Pour les passionnés de ce domaine : un classique à posséder !

HASH(0x98dbd7ec) étoiles sur 5 Solid, but not dazzling... 21 juin 2000
Par Lawrence Bird - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
The author does an excellent job of giving a layman's intro to auto-aerodynamics and the text is quite useful for a fan trying to understand what all those wings, bills and slots are supposed to do on CART, F1, IRL cars. It is clear that the author is very well versed in the subject of aerodynamics. Regrettably, he seems more intrigued by aerodynamics, than automobile aerodynamics and he draws the line of application to autos so shallowly that a serious reader will have to go to other aero-texts to actually apply what is offered here. This does not mean that he doesn't discuss at length, things like wings, slots, boundry-layers and a modest discussion of laminar flow (which is curious, since it is rarely achieved to any large degree -- the chronic automobile problem of turbulance producing bumps, ridges, seams and other protrusions, coupled with awful pressure gradients except perhaps on land speed record cars) and that part of the text is interesting.
There is an ongoing -- and intriguing, but not thorough -- discussion of the exotics of the racing world and he looks at open-wheeled cars quite often, but there a noticeable lack of discussion of open-wheel v. mud-flap bodywork. But the discussion of the challanges of racing at high-speeds in relatively stock-bodied autos is superficial at best. As an example, with all the aero-difficulties that NASCAR stockers have had staying on the ground for the past 15-years, there is limited discussion and the reader is left with one picture of an old Pontiac sedan drafting -- you will have to really read between the lines to figure out what a spoiler does, let alone how this most basic device works. However, if you dig, a reader can extrapolate some useful, but minimal, lift/drag/downforce data from some of the tables in the book...
Unfortunately, the good professor didn't give us the benifit of much of his obvious knowledge -- it seems to be an honest look at the automobile, but through the eyes of a Cessna, Boeing or Lockheed designer. A great book at half the price, but if your interests or racing rules require a relatively stock sedan or sports-car body configuration, there are other books with a more thorough treatment of the subject in this price range.

HASH(0x98dbdc18) étoiles sur 5 Katz obviously know his stuff and is current on technology 28 octobre 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I really enjoyed this book. It was easy to read and informative. The author clearly showed a great deal of familiarity with race cars and does a good job of laying out concepts without overcoming the reader with formulas or technical jargon. At the same time, he addresses some very cutting edge concepts such as the use of micro-vortex generators for drag reduction, and ground effects and exhaust powered ejectors for down force. There is certainly enough material covered to keep the most avid aerodynamicist interested and looking for more. Personally, I would love to see a follow up book published that goes into more technical detail, but I'm sure the author doesn't want to give up all of his secrets.
The only place where I did find the book lacking was in addressing vortex flow. Passenger automobiles are using turbulent air flow more often these days, primarily to reduce drag, yet none of the tricks you see commonly on Porsches or Corvettes, or even on every day sedans were addressed. Hopefully the author is saving this for his next book.
Overall I would definitely recommend that anyone interested in exotic cars, either as a spectator or operator, add this book to their collection.

HASH(0x98dbddd4) étoiles sur 5 Good introductory book 13 décembre 2001

If you've never taken a fluids course or are not a racing fan, this book will be a good introduction for both. It's not anywhere nearly as technical as his other books ("Low-Speed Aerodynamics" is arguably the standard in inviscid flows and on the shelf of most aero/fluids grad student), thankfully.
VERY basic on fluid mechanics/dynamics and scrapes the surface on racecar aerodynamics, but almost everybody in our wind tunnel (Langley Full Scale Tunnel) has a copy!

HASH(0x98dbdfb4) étoiles sur 5 interesting but dated 19 décembre 2009
Par Alexander T. Gafford - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
It is perhaps a mistake to title a book New Developments in Race Car Aerodynamics because the time will come when the book is no longer new. In 15 years the nature of aerodynamics has not changed but racing rules and regulations have and the tool of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) has greatly matured. The effect of the CFD revolution, if I can call it that, is that flow vizualization and flow calculation based on 3D mathematical models of cars has become so good and so cheap, relatively speacking, that wind tunnels are now a verification tool to make sure the models are correct. All this means that a rewrite of this book would look entirely different. In additon, I am still unclear as to who the audience was for this. It was not for a practicing automotive aerodymanicist, not being technical enough. But somehow it doesn't seem to me correctly structured for the car sports enthusiast who wants to know a bit more about aerodynamics and auto racing.

Still, there are good things here. The brief discussion of wind tunnels is quite interesting and in a sense explains the demand side of the CFD development since clearly the capital intensity of really accurate autosports wind tunnels is high. The basic explanations of fluid dynamic behavior are clear enough. The references at the end of the chapters are quite helpful and would enable anyone seeking more in depth understanding to find a path, though again, they are all 15 years old.

This is not a bad book, but more a starting point than an ending point.

HASH(0x953bd15c) étoiles sur 5 From Basics to advanced aerodynamics concepts 14 janvier 2007
Par Giani Thomas - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This is a very well written and designed book on cars aerodynamics. It starts from the Bernoulli law, passing through the definition of drag, lift, coefficient of pressure,...(always recalling to the objective of the book: understanding cars aerodynamics), ending with lot of examples on real-world race cars. There's no need to start reading this book with an advanced knowledge in engineering, because in here you can find all the recalls or new knowledge that you need in the subsequent chapters: so I recommend it for all kind of knowledge that you have. Lot of graphs, formulas, and very well described examples. So: not only theory but lot of practical examples and observations. Very good book!
