Abstract: This paper investigates the effect of rear spoiler and the angular effect of spoiler on the aerodynamics of the vehicle. We had analyzed the vehicle for various spoiler angles for coefficient of drag. In this project we had done computational fluid dynamics analysis on a car which we had designed on SOLIDWORKS2016x 64 Edition. After which we had done CFD analysis on the designed model usingANSYS 15.0and the module used for the analysis was FLUID FLOW (FLUENT). The aerodynamics of vehicle was analyzed at constant velocity for various spoiler angles with respect to ground. The comparison between the vehicle with spoiler and without spoiler is also done. The computational results with spoiler are compared with the experimental data. The results of the CFD analysis are somewhere very close to exact but are approximate as we had done 1000 iterations. In the analysis we the used spoiler at various angle i.e. 0, 10, 20 and 30 degree. In the analysis we got the results for coefficient of drag and drag force.
