Abstract

The impact of aerodynamics on vehicle performance has gained greater importance in the modern days. The effecst of drag and lift forces on automotives have been well accounted for and engineers are relentlessly working on minimising the negative implications of these aerodynamic forces. The dimples on golf balls have been proven to reduce drag and are given credit for a golf ball’s longer flight. The use of dimples to reduce drag has often inspired many aerodynamists and this research aims to quantify the drag and lift forces on an automotive with dimples on its roof. A wide range of dimple ratios, arrangements and velocities have been taken into consideration and successful reduction in drag and lift coefficients has been reported.
