The SmartTruck Program

Experience from Aerospace, Racing and Ground Transportation

CFD Technology was developed in the

Aviation and Aerospace industry

Complicated flow fields required advanced analysis methods

New tools were developed at NASA and

Boeing to assist Aerodynamic Engineers

in measuring and optimizing complex

airflows

AERION FLAPS 25

NAVIER STOKES SOLUTION

AOA = 22, M= .2

These same tools are utilized today in motorsports & transportation

Aerodynamic assessment and opportunities l.jpg
Aerodynamic Assessment and Opportunities

  • Of all vehicles operating on the road, class 8 long haul trucks would benefit most from low drag designs

    • Class 8 long haul drive cycle: 80% highway vs. 20% non-highway

    • Class 8 long haul trucks average 125,000 miles per year (100,000 highway miles)

  • However, among common vehicles on the road, class 8 long haul trucks have the highest drag

  • If all 1.3 million long haul trucks operated with Cd = .26, the US would annually:

    • Save 6.8 billion gallons of diesel

    • Reduce 75 million tons CO2

    • Save $19 billion in fuel costs
