Final week of the free 6 week online course has these topics below.
Should be essential knowledge for armchair experts with the upcoming grand tours over the northern hemisphere summer.
Week 6: Cycling aerodynamics
Why study cycling aerodynamics?
Wind-tunnel testing for a single cyclist – Part 1
Wind-tunnel testing for a single cyclist – Part 2
CFD simulations for a single cyclist
Aerodynamics of two drafting cyclists
Aerodynamics of drafting cyclist groups
Aerodynamics of car-cyclist combinations
Interview with professional cycling coaches from teams Belkin and RaboLiv
The last three parts of the course assume a lower degree of scientific knowledge and are geared toward a more general audience.
These parts are explicitly intended at the widest possible audience. Again, the full benefit from the course will be obtained by participants with a background in mathematics and physics (fluid mechanics).
