Aerodynamics of Road Vehicles and Trains June 23-25 2014, Bordeaux, France
This conference is meant as a place where engineers and researchers can exchange their ideas in ground vehicle aerodynamics. It is meant as a forum for engineers and scientists from industry (manufacturers and operators of road vehicles and trains) and universities for presentations and discussions of the relevant advances in vehicle aerodynamics techniques. The conference will take place from 23 to 25 June in the historical city of Bordeaux, classified as the world heritage town of UNESCO.
Date: June 23, 2014
Location: The Institure of Mathematics of Bordeaux, Bordeaux, France

The abstracts are invited within following subjects:

- Time-dependent simulations of vehicle flows (DNS, LES,
URANS and related techniques)
- Novel experimental techniques applied in vehicle aerodynamics
- Flow control applied to road vehicles and trains
- Aerodynamic shape optimization of vehicles
- Predictions of rapid changes in vehicle flow including
wind-gust effects, overtaking, passage of other vehicles
vehicle or infrastructure etc.
- Numerical and experimental explorations of new techniques
for drag reduction such as platooning (traveling in convoys).
