Title (EN) HIGH-PERFORMANCE CAR WITH STREAMLINE CONFIGURATION- ALTERING AIR JETS
(FR) VOITURE HAUTE PERFORMANCE AVEC JETS D'AIR DE MODIFICATION DE LA CONFIGURATION AERODYNAMIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) A high-performance car (1) having a car body (2) ; at least one member (8; 6) for cooling; at least one cooling duct (10; 19) extending between an inlet opening (11; 20) and an outlet opening (12; 21), both formed through the car body (2), to conduct outside cooling air through the member (8; 6) for cooling; and at least one blow duct (13; 22) which terminates at a blow opening (14; 23), formed through the car body (2), to direct an air jet which interacts with the airflow about the car body (2) to alter the streamline configuration of the car; the blow duct (13; 22) originates at an initial portion of the cooling duct (10; 19), upstream from the member (8; 6) for cooling, and has a deflecting device (15; 24) which can be activated to divert at least part of the air in the cooling duct (10; 19) to the blow duct (13; 22) .
(FR) L'invention concerne une voiture haute performance (1) qui possède une carrosserie (2); au moins un élément (8; 6) de refroidissement; au moins une conduite de refroidissement (10; 19) qui s'étend entre un orifice d'admission (11; 20) et un orifice de sortie (12; 21) ménagés sur la carrosserie de la voiture (2) pour diriger l'air de refroidissement vers l'extérieur à travers l'élément (8; 6) de refroidissement; et au moins une conduite de soufflage (13; 22) qui se termine par un orifice d'air chaud (14; 23) ménagé sur la carrosserie de la voiture (2) pour diriger un jet d'air qui interagit avec le flux d'air autour de la carrosserie de la voiture (2) de manière à modifier la configuration aérodynamique de la voiture; la conduite de soufflage (13; 22) partant d'une partie initiale de la conduite de refroidissement (10; 19), en amont de l'élément (8; 6) de refroidissement, et comporte un dispositif de déviation (15; 24) qui, une fois activé, dévie au moins une partie de l'air contenu dans la conduite de refroidissement (10; 19) vers la conduite de soufflage (13; 22) .
