Aerovehicles 5 is meant as a place where engineers and researchers can exchange their ideas and progress in ground vehicle aerodynamics. It is a forum for engineers and scientists from both industry (manufacturers and operators of road vehicles and trains) and universities to present and discuss recent advances and latest methodologies in the field of vehicle aerodynamics, and identify research needs concerning: physical modelling; numerical predictions; experimental approaches and analysis of huge data fields.
The first conference Aerovehicles 1 was hosted by the University of Bordeaux, (France), in 2014. It was followed by Aerovehicles 2 which was hosted by Chalmers University, Göteborg (Sweden), in 2016. Aerovehicles 3 was organized and hosted by Politecnico di Milano (Italy)in 2018. The latest one Aerovehicles 4 was hosted in a hybrid form byTechnische Universität Berlin (Germany) in 2021. Aerovehicles 5 will take place 2023 June 12-14 in Poitiers (France) and will be organized by Prof. Jacques Borée (ISAE-ENSMA/Pprime).
