Aerodynamics at Digital USD

https://digital.sandiego.edu/do/sear...4847542&facet=

Just a Car Guy ran a story about USD archiving materials on California low rider culture online. I followed the story to the website and did a search for 'aerodynamics'.

I haven't gotten deeply into any of it yet, but I'm curious what others might find. Some interesting titles
  • On Helical Multiscale Characterization of Homogeneous Turbulence 2012
  • Simple, compact source for low-temperature air plasmas 2002
  • Energy, Entropy and the Environment (How to Increase the First by Decreasing the Second to Save the Third) 2008
And of course that's just the one search.

This might be of interest considering that a classic year drop shape is used to explain aerodynamics doesn't exist.

I'd heard about pancakes years ago, but the exploding parachutes is new to me.

The animation has the whole blob wobbling, but in fact the bottom is stable while the top is buffeted with turbulence.
