Most people never think about the aerodynamic drag on trucks traveling at speed, but it’s one of the most important considerations for logistics companies. The majority of fuel doesn’t go into putting the vehicle into motion; it goes into keeping it there. You might know how mounting spoilers, vortex generators and diffusers on cars result in drag reduction but have you ever wondered how do trucks deal with aerodynamic drag?more “How do Trucks deal with Aerodynamic drag?”
