Truck Tractor and Trailer Aerodynamic Drag Reduction using Single Dielectric Barrier Discharge (SDBD) Plasma Actuators
Background: The drag produced by class 8 trucks requires two-thirds of the engine’s output to maintain a highway speed. To put in another way, a large portion of the power consumed by these types of vehicles is spent in overcoming aerodynamic drag. The reduction of this drag force would benefit vehicle characteristics, such as fuel efficien...
