Abstract
Car aerodynamics are subjected to a number of random variables which introduce uncertainty into the downforce performance. These can include, but are not limited to, pitch variations and ride height variations. Studying the effect of the random variations in these parameters is important to predict accurately the car performance during the race. Despite their importance the assessment of these variations is difficult and it cannot be performed with a deterministic approach. In the open literature, there have been no studies dealing with this uncertainty in car racing aerodynamics modelling the complete car and assessing the probability of a competitive advantage...
