After the revolution of airfoils on auto racing from 1966 (Formula 1 1968) and after the appearance of ground-effect in 1977, into machines called cars for wing or wing-cars, the aerodynamics has taken on roles of the highest order on the slopes, passing from the traditional study of advancement, resistance to the exploitation of deportanze, in order to increase the travel speed of the curves of these vehicles.
In this new edition of the basic book first appeared in 1991, signed by one of the most known world engineers of Formula 1, Enrico Benzing, this complex subject is dealt with comprehensiveness and simplicity of expressions in such a way as to be accessible to all.
L automotive type wing at the center of discussion, while the painting completed by the aerodynamic behavior of a whole race car, especially one-seat, touching on particular aspects, such as the Magnus effect, l-ground effect, the power calculation, but also issues related to wind tunnels.
Compared to the first edition, this second volume completed by a specific chapter dedicated to CFD (computation fluid dynamics).
Hundreds of drawings accompany this work, indispensable starting point for those wishing to know fully how fascinating this complex matter.
