Abstract:
Numerical investigations on motorcycle wheels are described, in order to point out their aerodynamic characteristics and their influence on the global aerodynamic behavior of the motorcycles. The trials studied the development of the design of the front mud-guard in a commercial motorcycle, that showed an undesirable lift effect during on-road and wind tunnel tests. The functionality of the mud-guard was checked, varying its shape and dimensions, in order to reduce the lift effect and eventually to improve the whole behavior of the motorcycle.
