Announces Market Ready Truck Beta
Prototype for September


particularly for local and short haul carriers that
spend more time in urban and suburban traffic,
where they are likely to have lower fuel efficiency
than their long haul or regional carrier peers.  At
16.3% drag reduction, fuel savings would
average 8.1% - 10.6%  or $3,000 - $5,000 per
year per truck.




The Company has tested a new rear of the trailer
solution which also performed well in the Japan
wind tunnel tests with 20.5% drag reduction at 40
mph and 10.6% reduction at 60 mph.  Both
solutions will be tested together in the near future
to determine what the combined results would
be.

OSAKA, Japan - Cool Flow Dynamics Inc., in its
latest wind tunnel testing conducted in Japan
produced drag reduction results exceeding 35% at
30 mph and 16.3% at 60 mph. Testing also
confirmed the thesis that drag is more unevenly
concentrated on the front portion of the vehicle at
lower speeds and evens out as the truck reaches
highway speeds.
"save 5.5 million gallons of fuel
for a $6.5 million investment"


"The higher reduction in drag at the lower speeds
is particularly significant" stated Dr. Soni, who
leads the engineering efforts for the Company,
"because it is occurring when the truck is
experiencing its highest fuel consumption." This
also bodes well for trucks and truck companies,

Sarasota, Florida - Cool Flow Dynamics Inc., announced that the
first commercial, market ready, retrofit Beta prototype will be
installed in September 2016. "What this means is that upon
successful testing, the company would be in position to take
orders and deliver product to prospective customers in as soon as
60 days", explained the Senior VP of Global Sales Kevin Rogers. In
terms of economics, the Beta partner could save 5.5 million
gallons of fuel for a $6.5 million investment.




The nationally ranked truck carrier that will be conducting our Beta
tests has a fleet of nearly 5,000 class 8 trucks and over 12,000
trailers and is but one of several similar sized companies
representing the trucking industry that have expressed interest in a
trial installation of CFD solutions.

Self- powered, active air flow devices generate horizontal
vortex (red arrow) which seals the gap between the truck
and trailer through "virtual shaping". This minimizes
intrusion of the air flow which create drag, moving along
the sides and roof of the truck.
VIRTUAL SHAPING OF AIR
So What is an Example
of Virtual Shaping?
The most common,but not obvious example
of virtual shaping is in the common pick-up
truck.  












The age old debate was hatch up or hatch
down for better aerodynamics.  It turns out
that as you can see from the image above,
when the hatch is up, a powerful vortex (
blue
-
see red arrow) forms in the rear of the
open truck cavity which then forms a wall of
air that then becomes impenetrable. In fact
this wall of air is even more effective than a
physical shaped cover because there is no
surface friction and vortex will shape (thus
virtual shaping) itself to the surrounding air
flow, forming an almost perfect seal.

This is the secret to our success!
