Default flow across an aerofoil near to the ground
Posts: n/a

From simulation, It can been seen that there is an increase in downforce when the aerofoil come close the ground ie: ground effects. but when the aerofoil comes close to a certain height, the downforce suddenly reduced drastically.

Do anyone know why?.

Contact me privately if you like, I recently did a PhD on ground effect.
