Abstract

In an age of advanced technology which more towards on green science and green technology, reducing fuel consumption and emission become one of the major goals in automotive industry. Aerodynamics performance around the vehicle gives a great influence in fuel consumption and emission of a vehicle. Side view mirror, a compulsory components that mounted on both side of the automobile. It acts as a device for providing the driver a indirect vision adjacent to the vehicle which cannot be observed by a direct vision. However, the vibration and noise generated from the side view mirror had resulted a distortion, image blurring, and discomfort ambience to the driver and passengers. It is due to the fluctuating pressure on the mirror surface which might led to the aerodynamic effects to the side mirror even thought the effect is considered small if compared to the total drag of a vehicle. Therefore, this aim of this study is to remodel the physical testing using Computer-Aided Design (CAD) software to investigate the pressure distribution on the mirror surface and verifying the simulation result with the physical experiment wind tunnel data. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software is used as a simulation software in this study. The result obtained are discussed in pressure distribution contour and in term of pressure coefficient, by introducing different parameter of mirror's foot height and foot width.
