Car reveal

As you may have noticed on our social media, the construction of the car has finally begun. This means that our main focus of the development process in the CAD programs are coming to an end. Unfortunately we can not show you any of the parts constructed in CAD because they are confidential at this time. As time goes by, our energy focuses on simulations of the aerodynamic body. After months of designing and calculating. We are hereby revealing that the car is going to look like following:

On this design we have performed aerodynamic calculations on the air resistance. It is important to minimize the power consumption of the car throughout the competition for best result possible. Right now we have the right necessity's to cross the finish line. Since a good placing in the competition is important for us, we continue to improve our model. This is of paramount importance because of air resistance. This stands for almost 85% of the total power consumption. 

Below, you can see two pictures that show the contour plotting and the vector plotting of the absolute pressure of the car.
