An improved method and device for the reduction of aerodynamic drag and for improved performance of bluff base vehicles by increasing the pressure on the bluff base of the vehicle by controlling the wake flow and the interaction of the wake flow with the vehicle bluff base region. An improved method and device for generating a reduction in drag force on the bluff base of a body moving through a fluid. The apparatus consists of two opposing panels attached to the bluff base and aligned approximately parallel to the side edge of the bluff base and lying in...
I claim: 1. An apparatus for reducing the aerodynamic drag of a body having a bluff base, a top, a bottom, and two sides, the bluff base having a left half and a right half on either side of the centerline, the apparatus comprising: a first substantially rectangular panel; a second substantially rectangular panel; each of the panels having a width, length, and thickness; wherein the panels are symmetrically positioned about the centerline of the bluff base in opposition, wherein the first panel is attached lengthwise to the right-half of the bluff base ...
