Title (EN) VEHICLE EXHAUST ASSEMBLIES
(FR) ENSEMBLE ECHAPPEMENT DE VEHICULE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An assembly mountable on a vehicle which is powered by an internal combustion engine and connectable to its exhaust system (5), comprising an aerofoil section (1) with internal ducting and an external slot (2), which, when subjected to the airflow generated by the vehicle's forward motion, generates an area of low pressure (12) in the vicinity of the slot (2), the area of low pressure (12) generating a partial vacuum and acting so as to assist the extraction of exhaust gases from the combustion chambers of the engine by sucking them out.
(FR)L'invention concerne un ensemble susceptible d'être monté sur un véhicule à moteur à combustion interne et relié au système d'échappement (5) de ce véhicule, qui comprend un profil aérodynamique (1) avec une tuyauterie interne et une fente externe (2). Sous l'effet du flux d'air engendré par le déplacement du véhicule vers l'avant, une zone de basse pression (12) se forme au voisinage de la fente (2), cette zone (12) créant un vide partiel et favorisant l'extraction des gaz d'échappement hors des chambres de combustion du moteur par aspiration vers l'extérieur.
