Today, the entire car in this world was made according to the aerodynamic concept to prevent high danger gas emission and lower fuel consumption. There are many parts of the car that contribute to drag. One such part is the side mirrors. Although the side mirrors are small, it still has drag coefficient when driving at high speed. So, to reduce this drag force, the air flow the side mirrors must be low turbulence. In the automotive industry, the simulation of the car's body will be made to know about how good the car can reduce the drag force including the side mirror. For this research, the main targets are to study the flow around side mirror and pressure distribution. From the study in several journals, the parameters that will affect the flow and pressure of the side mirror (without changing the body curvature and dimension) are the gap (distance between the side mirror body and the attachment plate), the height of side mirror foot and the diffuser angle. So far, different side mirror models (4 models) have been designed using computer aided drawing (CAD) known as CATIA software. Then, it have been analyzed using computer fluid dynamic (CFD) software which is Hyperwork. The results of the analysis have been compared and discussed.
