orange4boy did you generate these images have you got keys to show the scale? Or 3d plots as I'm not sure 2d representations are truly representative here.

vocabulary lesson (what are you talking about?)

I am trying to learn but the curve is steep right now. I know you are talking about the flow under the car. But where I get lost is when you use new (to me) terms and I have no image in my head of them:
front undertray = belly pan from front bumper to front axel??
central airdam = ???
side skirts = extending panel down between the front and rear wheels??
flow fences = ???
wheel fairings/strakes = getting confused is this like spats and boattails?

Basjoos uses inner and outer fences between the front and rear wheels to reduce turbulence from the tires. is this like two flow fences connecting the front and rear tires.

small dams in front of the rear tires = like spats?

these are just the terms / phrases from this thread .. sometimes it seems like different people are talking about the same thing but calling it different term. PLEASE correct me if I have these mixed up or fill in what term means.
