DESIGN STUDY IN THE DESIGNING A KART -REAR AND FRONT WINGS
Keywords:Superkart, rear wing, front wing, aerodynamics, down force, the Coanda effect
Because Superkarts can reach very high speeds, they need an extra help when it comes to grip, because they are very light. This article aims to create a design of the rear and front wings, to ensure a flow of air so as to obtain a very good grip of the Superkarts. The pressure force acting on the front wing of the Superkart comes from the airfoiled shape of the wings attached to the front wing, which creates a pressure difference between the top and bottom of the wing, according to the Coanda effect. The designed rear and front wings will be subjected to airflow tests to study both performance and airflow behaviour before and after interacting with them.
