CL vs yaw angle

CL vs yaw angle

CL vs yaw angle

This is specifically pertaining to ground motorsport vehicles. I'm looking for some data of the amount of down force generated by a front splitter vs the yaw angle of the car. All I have found is the downforce is significantly reduced as yaw increases (due to less stagnation of course), but this isn't enough for me.  I'm looking for some real data to work with.

i havn't had much success searching the net.

RE: CL vs yaw angle

heh, i have that book. I'll check out the references.  

RE: CL vs yaw angle

There's less in there about yaw than i expected, SAE 850283 2002-01-3312

However figure 6-14 makes me think the effect is small

Hucho is another good source of references.
