'bike_tyre_homework' simulation project by gchourdakis


#1

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.


#2

Evaluation of the forces for yaw angles 20 and 30 degrees:


# 20 degrees:


Drag = Pressure force x + Viscous force x = -0.12 + 0.46 = 0.34

Side Force = Pressure force y + Viscous force y = 11.72 + 0.12 = 11.84


# 30 degrees:


Drag = Pressure force x + Viscous force x = 0.17 + 0.39 = 0.56

Side Force = Pressure force y + Viscous force y = 14.69 + 0.13 = 14.82
