Formula One fluid mechanics in our devices
"We looked at the aerodynamics of our racing cars to get ideas how to improve the airflow inside our extraction and filter units."
Above a certain speed, Formula One racing cars could even drive on the ceiling, such is the downforce generated by their sophisticated aerodynamics. The downforce is generated not only by the front or rear wing, but mainly by the complex fluid mechanics of the underbody. The powerful suction literally pulls the car onto the road.
