An extensive overview of the state of automotive aerodynamics. Provides a good introduction to all topics of automotive engineering which relate to aerodynamics. Also includes an extensive list of references. At times lacking some detail but overall an excellent introduction to the study of vehicle aerodynamics, a must-have reference for anyone in the field.

I have been learning CFD as a hobby and found most books just jump into the math and can be tough going. This one gives a good overview and gave me an intuitive understanding of the area. It is packed full of good information (over 900 pages!) and although 10 years old it is still relevant. It was probably a lot more expensive when it was first released but now at less that $100 it is a bargain.

My only gripe was I would like to see more on motorbikes. The section on motorbikes is good but you are expected to derive streamlining information from other sections to apply to motorbikes. This is not a big ask but it would be more perfect for me as that is what I bought the book for.

I also like it as it in metric but that might put others off.

Very good purchase! The best book for this subject. SAE books is the reference for all technologies automotive. Aerodynamics of Road Vehicles is great book and has all information about Fluid Mechanics to Vehicle Engineering. Is a good acquisition for new students or experts.
