Dispersion and flow of air in passenger compartments of vehicles are important to assure a comfortable environment for passengers, driver concentration and safe driving conditions. The article describes numerical adiabatic flow simulations for the " mute " , an electric car. Air streams in its passenger compartment were simulated; air velocities were… (More)
In-flight measurements of the accelerations on a recreational flying disc are made with miniaturized accelerometers and a microcontroller data acquisition system using off-the-shelf components. These data are used to determine the aerodynamic performance of the disc, and illustrate several of the complex gyrodynamic aspects of frisbee flight.
