'Bike Aerodynamics' simulation project by Akrem


I created a new simulation project called 'Bike Aerodynamics':

This project shows the effect of the side wind on different wheels designs.

More of my public projects can be found here.




Bike aerodynamics is considered to be one of the most complex applications in aerodynamics not only because of the bluff body shape of the rider ― which generates the majority of the drag ― but also due to the transient cycling movement. The latter creates high complexity in the flow pattern and changes the forces acting both on the bike, as well as on the rider dramatically.
