a vehicle like a car or a truck car are constantly in contact with the surrounding fluid. This contact generates a resistance force depending on vehicle speed, shape, and the displaced fluid.
To calculate the power consumed by the resistance to progress of a vehicle we use formulas whose parameters are:
- midship area
- the Cd (aerodynamic or hydrodynamic drag coefficient).
- Fluid velocity
- fluid viscosity
- fluid density
With Mecaflux standard:
You choose a vehicle, you change the speed settings, or fluidthe force of resistance and power consumption are given to you ...:
