Virtual Wind Tunnel: Short Video

This is a short video of a "virtual wind tunnel" CFD simulation of a Kyosho Mini-Z MR03 Mazda 787b model.

The video shows Cp (pressure coefficient) fluctuations as the car "races" at 10 m/s (36 km/h).

The simulations shows high pressure areas at the front of the car and at the top of the rear wing, and low pressure areas at the back of the car and underneath the rear wing. The cross section view allows the observation of low pressure areas underneath the body shell.
