Abstract

The thesis investigates the impact on the drag coefficient of vehicles when using a luggage attached at the rear of the car instead for conventional roof boxes. Results show that the new luggage box increases CdA of the vehicle by 4 to 7%, compared to almost 40% with the roof boxes. Some suggestions for improvement in the shape of the luggage box were also tested successfully.
