Paper Title:
Research of Aerodynamic Characteristics about Minibus
  Abstract

To research the aerodynamic characteristics of minibus, the simplified model is studied with simulation and wind tunnel test. The validated method was adopted in the numerical simulation, the wind tunnel test were carried out in order to validate the results of numerical simulation. The tests include aerodynamic drag measure, filament method, and laser flow visualization. Through the contrasted research the results of simulation and test, the aerodynamic characteristics of minibus was analyzed and the characteristic of field around minibus was discovered. The conclusions provide the theoretical foundation for styling optimization of minibus, which are very helpful to develop new vehicle styling.
