'Aerodynamics of a F1 Race Car' simulation project by Milad_Mafi


I created a new simulation project called 'Aerodynamics of a F1 Race Car':

This project include a simulation of the external aerodynamics of 2017 F1 race car.

More of my public projects can be found here.


The results of this simulation projects were shown in this video by Real Engineering.
Make a copy and change the setup according to your specifications, to perform your own simulation.

Total Pressure Coefficient (X-Axis)

Total Pressure Coefficient (Y-Axis)



in f1 2017 workshop you presented forces acting on F1 2016 and 2017.

But in in solver log of this simulation i found your numbers of drag and downforce to be much smaller. Why is that ?




this is because of a different ride height of the model. Actually this simulation is part of a new study we prepare which covers the impact of pitch and ground distance on the aerodynamics of the car.



Great, i will keep following you project ! I m just wondering, can i find here on simscale that simulation you used for those calculations for that 2016vs2017 webinar ? I m really keen to see that, please
