Group design project
As I’m part of the Formula Student team, my group design project is to design a high-performance racing car. My specific task is to design the rear wing, which provides downforce, increasing the traction of the wheel and increasing cornering speeds. As I have no previous experience designing racing car aerodynamics, this is quite a daunting project, but through research and planning I know I can achieve a good result. Experimentation and computational analysis are vital to this project. This means I will be using a wind tunnel alongside computational fluid dynamics software to validate and optimise my designs.
