When you’re running in a pack of cars in over two hundred miles an hour, it’s unsettling for the drivers and for the cars. The drivers refer to it as dirty air. In a way you can see dirty areas through computational fluid dynamics (CFD). That’s computer modeling that will show the airflow across the … Continued
