This video shows flow visualization techniques used to test the active aerodynamics and functional design of the Ford GT. The high performance vehicle is placed in a wind tunnel using an avergage wind speed of 125 mph to test interior wind noise acoustics and the vehicle aerodynamics. Its tear drop shape is a result of this extensive wind tunnel testing, and is responsible for minimizing drag and maximizing downforce [1]. The sleek and pleasing design of the Ford GT does not compromise functionality. Every scoop, grill, or opening has a designed purpose to benifit the vehicles aerodynamics and performance.

    First Prize. This not only shows the science applied to the car, but also shows the beauty that results from it.
