SPECIAL AERODYNAMIC PROBLEMS OF HIGH SPEED GROUND TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS

The aerodynamic problems which are special to the development of high speed ground transportation systems are discussed. The aerodynamics of ground transportation vehicles has certain unique aspects not found in the aerodynamics of vehicles which operate away from the restraint of the ground plane. The aerodynamic problems of interest fall into three categories: external flow about a vehicle in the presence of a ground plane, life aerodynamics in the presence of a ground plane, and the aerodynamics of vehicles in tunnels.
