Aerodynamics

Flow visualisation.

MIRA’s aerodynamics team use state of the art Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulation techniques to deliver substantial aerodynamic drag savings on a wide range of vehicles from motorcycles, passenger cars and trucks through to land-speed record breaking concepts.

Following pre-prototype rapid development, validation can take place in the UK’s only full-scale automotive wind tunnel. No other UK consultancy can offer either the range of tools that MIRA has, or the depth of experience and industry knowledge that exists in the aerodynamics engineering team.

MIRA's extensive expertise in aerodynamics includes:

Position optimisation.
  • State-of-the-art 3D CFD modelling for aerodynamic and cooling performance prediction using commercial and open-source tools
  • Testing and validation in the UK’s only full-scale automotive wind tunnel
  • Novel large volume flow visualization technique (LVAV) for enhanced investigation of air flow around vehicle
  • Unrivalled experience in the aerodynamic development of a wide range of vehicles from passenger and race car through to HGV and ultra-high-performance vehicles
  • Providers of advanced R&D and leading edge aerodynamics technologies
