Road Vehicle Drag

  1. Jan 13, 2009 #1

    i'm writting a report on road vehicle drag.

    Are there any free resources online / journals that i can use for research?

    my questions:

    Relationship between Drag and Turbulence
    what does a engineer design in a car? (engines, the body-aerodynamics..)
    and the relationship between aesthetics and aerodynamic drag performance.

    Any help wouuld be much appreciated!

    Welcome to PF.

    You'll need to do the heavy lifting on this. But perhaps Wikipedia would be a generally good place to start?

    More specifically:
