Description

This document entails the background and process for conducting a project geared towards analyzing Formula One car front wings. The design process includes creating a three-dimensional CAD rendering of three Formula One cars and using CFD to analyze their performance via downforce at various speeds. A comparison of the measured downforce levels is compared to real-world data using Amazon Web Service data collection and video coverage from a selected event. Results indicate that wing geometry has a significant effect on its respective performance.
