Abstract:

With the increase in global warming and harmful emissions coupled with the increasing number of automobile road vehicles moving on highway roads has brought the attention of policy makers to focus on the research to mitigate climate change and also to increase the performance of road vehicles. Due to the current laws which have been reinforced on fuel emissions, scholars and manufacturers have been prompted to work back to back on improving the engine performance or reducing aerodynamic drag of road vehicles to improve fuel economy. This research focus on how aerodynamic drag can be reduced by adding a spoiler at the rear of a passenger vehicle to control the flow. The analysis is done through wind tunnel experiments in combination with CFD software package Fluent 16.0. The addition of a rear spoiler was found to be able to reduce aerodynamic drag but in the wrong run it considerably increased lift.
