'bike_tyre_homework' simulation project by lim17


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.


After the simulations for the bike wheel, it can be said that for a low side slip angle (5deg) the side force is much lower than for a high side slip angle (20 deg). By analysing the the forces plot it is can be seen how the pressure force is Y is about 1/3 in the case for 5 deg compared to 20 deg.

With respect to drag, the drag force is higher for the case of low side slip angle than for the case of high side slip angle, this can also be seen in the forces chart.
