TIGA LMP2 In The Wind Tunnel

Here’s the best picture so far of the forthcoming TIGA LMP2 as Mike Newton and co .helped a group of Engineering students to get some hands-on experience of aerodynamics and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) with the part completed car in the wind-tunnel.

Mike Newton:

“This was the first review in the wind tunnel of the initial test parts for the LMP214 bodywork. Although we were still running the original rear wing mount, and experimenting with front wheel opening positions, we were able to collect some encouraging and useful data, in particular to allow the students to be able to correlate their theoretical work to date with live data.

“We are delighted to be working with Manchester University MACE ( School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering ) www.mace.manchester.ac.uk both in terms of advancing the design, and also providing the students with real life scenarios”
