Title:
Experimental and Numerical Investigations on Isolated, Treaded and Rotating Car Wheels 
Abstract:
Wheels on passenger vehicles cause about 25% of the aerodynamic drag. The interference of rims and tires in combination with the rotation result in strongly turbulent wake regions with complex flow phenomena. These wake structures interact with the flow around the vehicle. To understand the wake structures of wheels and their impact on the aerodynamic drag of the vehicle, the complexity was reduced by investigating a standalone tire in the wind tunnel. The wake region behind the wheel is investi...    »
