'bike_tyre_homework' simulation project by stodd279


#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

Simulation – Sideslip 7 deg at timestep 925


Drag = 0.55 + 0.49 = 1.14N

Side Force = 4.59 + 0.05 = 4.64N



Simulation – Sideslip 23 deg at timestep 925


Drag = 0.44 + -0.006 = 0.434N

Side Force = 12.8 + 0.12 = 12.92N


Evaluation

The results show that there is less net drag force associated with the wheel exposed to a side-slip angle of 23. However, the side force that is applied to the wheel during the 23 degree angle was around 3 times higher than 7 degree side-slip angle.
