Abstract

The front bumper of bobsleigh is mounted to alleviate the impact, but the air resistance to the bobsleigh depends on the body shape positioned in front. This study was conducted the flow analyses about three kinds of bobsleigh configurations. Models B and C with the sharp type of the front can reduce the air resistance than model A with the round type of the front. And the type that the back of the bumper narrows can generate a flow smoother than the one widening. It is thought that the results of this study can be devoted at ensuring the body design to reduce the flow resistance most at bobsleigh. As the design data with the durability of bobsleigh obtained on the basis of this study result are utilized, the esthetic sense can be shown by being grafted onto the machine or structure at real life.
