Abstract: Aerodynamic drag has been experimentally estimated for scale models of a passenger car and a commercial truck in a wind tunnel. Polished surface has resulted up to 15 % reduction in drag force and add-on has resulted in 57% increase in drag force of a car model whereas 2.6 % reduction in drag force has resulted by using deflector in a commercial truck model. Anova analysis shows variation in mean of group data.
