'bike_tyre_homework' simulation project by atumbiolo


I created a new simulation project called 'bike_tyre_homework':

Homework for the Sport workshop : Session 2 CFD analysis of a bike tyre

More of my public projects can be found here.


In these simulations I have chosen to use the following yaw angles: 10° and 20°.

By comparing the two solutions we notice that the increase of the yaw angle corresponds roughly to a 42% decrease of the drag (for 10° D≈ 0.9 N, for 20° D≈0.38 N) while the side force obviously increases approximately by 84% (for 10° Y≈ 6.47 N, for 20° Y≈11.88 N).
