ABSTRACT

A boundary layer flow has been considered for studying the drag force on the surface of a moving car. We have divided body of car into three main portions, where side span portion is not been considered. The portion, facing the driver was considered as a moving plate and the portion including the wind screen was taken as a wedge. The influence of car velocity and wind screen angle on the drag force is obtained by numerical computation.
