Join us online for an exclusive webinar on Aerodynamics

 

Join Moderator Sam Lagozzino for an insight into Aerodynamics, when he is joined by former Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team, Aerodynamicist - Kyle Forster PhD.

Kyle will share a brief insight into materials provided in his comprehensive training package, including;

  • why aero is. important,
  • fundamentals of aerodynamics and how they apply to racecars,
  • suspension and aero interaction, and 
  • key aero development areas.

 

He will also share his journey from Australia to the most successful F1 Team on the circuit.

Kyle will provide tools and advice for aerodynamicists, including:

 

  • Aerodynamic components: wings, winglets, diffusers.
  • Constraints: Rules and regulations that control aerodynamics performance and financial constraints of developing aerodynamics parts. 
  • Testing: How do you test aero components?
  • Tuning: How to tune a vehicle to optimise its aerodynamic performance.
  • Compromise: The compromise between downforce and drag, aero grip vs mechanical grip

 

Who should attend

 

  • Engineers working in the automotive industry
  • Motorsport professionals
  • Automotive technicians who want to understand the engineering behind the aerodynamic performance
  • Students preparing an FSAE car who would like to understand racecar aerodynamic design and set-up
  • Anyone with an interest in how a racecar's aerodynamics work and are tuned for their intended purpose.
  • Students studying engineering, who want to know how a racecars aerodynamics works and are tuned.
