The aerodynamic drag reduction rate [DRR.sub.1] of the first vehicle can be expressed using Equation (7) since its coefficient of drag changes according to the change in its base pressure, and can be determined from the empirical formula in Figure 11.
Summary: Long revered in the Middle East for its combination of performance, spaciousness and generous interior refinement, the Tahoe adds class-leading fuel efficiency to its list of capabilities, with a vehicle design that produces a low coefficient of drag (CD).
Sculptured "active" bodywork, a lowered chassis and special aerodynamic 16-inch alloys give the car a super slick 0.27 coefficient of drag while brake energy regeneration and low rolling resistance tyres all help to make the most of the 160bhp.
The Cabriolet's cd (coefficient of drag) figure of 0.28 is the best in its class, the statement added.
The front headlamps slide back to create openings for better air intake when the 1.4-litre petrol engine is in use and a sliding U-shaped deck-lid extends from the rear of the vehicle at higher speeds for improved coefficient of drag.
And, despite having a slippery shape with a coefficient of drag factor of just 0.25, it doesn't look anywhere near as wacky as the previous model.
The e-moving is also a winner in global recognition, having garnered a prize at the 2010 iF Product Design Award or the "Design Oscar." CMC says that the design of the e-scooter takes into consideration the whole package, achieving an optimal combination of ecology-friendliness, catchy styling, high technology, and user convenience, as well as adopting generally rounded exterior to minimize coefficient of drag; while the coveted honor will also motivate CMC to stay in the green vehicle sector.
The new body style returns a coefficient of drag of 0.25, which I believe is the best in class.
Synergetic effects generated between the hybrid system and the vehicle as a whole, including its one-of-the-best-in-the-world aerodynamic performances (with a coefficient of drag value of 0.25), achieve a world-best1 fuel efficiency of 38.0km/l2, and deliver driving performance equivalent to that of a 2.4-liter engine.
The car features a low coefficient of drag of 0.27, providing it with enhanced grip in all weather situations, while also enhancing fuel efficiency.
The coefficient of drag reached its peak when wind speeds measured around 115 kilometers per hour--a pace just shy of the threshold for a category 1 hurricane, the team reports in the March 23 Science.
Shoes For Crews makes a work shoe with a proprietary compound applied to the soles that the company says provides the highest slip coefficient of drag of any shoe.
