Changing the Aerodynamic Athlete Game
Technology sports blogger and Key note industry speaker at several leading industry events provides a YouTube overview on the AeroLab technology and the industry at EuroBike.
Public White Paper: Technical Overview v1.1
For the aerodynamic design of cycling products, it is critical to understand how wind tunnel experimental measurements and computational fluid dynamics simulations translate to real-world environmental conditions. This document serves as an introduction and overview of AeroLab Tech sensor devices.
Part 1: Can Rolling Resistance & Rider Weight be Assumed Constant
Part 1: In real-time aerodynamic drag and coefficient of drag calculations, it is important to have a good estimate of the rider weight, the rolling resistance coefficient, the power input to the pedals, the wind velocity, and environmental factors.
Part 2: Can Rolling Resistance & Rider Weight be Assumed Constant
If you haven’t already done so, read Part 1
Part 2: The take home message for anyone reading this article is as follows: When using Aerodynamic Sensors on a bicycle for the purpose of estimating CdA, the total weight of the rider must be known within about 0.5 [Kg] or better, the rolling resistance coefficient Crr should be either known or measured with significantly better than 10% accuracy!
DC Rainmaker: AeroLab Tech’s Aerodynamic Sensors
For years, aerodynamic sensors and testing facilities for cycling have been appropriated to not just the pointy end of the pack, but the absolute tip of that pointy end. The cost for a mere hour of wind tunnel time is as much as a power meter, and that excludes the travel costs required to get to but a handful of centers around the world – or that they recommend two hours of time. Even in the most time-optimized test setup, iterations in a wind tunnel take lots of time.
Slowtwitch Forum: Aerodynamic Testing 3.0
The next level for wind-tunnel aerodynamic testing may be, NO wind tunnel!
Canadian Start-Up AeroLab has been working on some ground-breaking technology that would eliminate the need to go to the wind tunnel to test gear, positions and other details...
