To allow for a large variety of investigations, the DrivAer body was developed as a modular concept with 18 different configurations.
To describe the different configurations of the DrivAer model a simple categorizing system has been derived.
First Letter: describes the geometry of the top
E Estate Back
Second Letter: describes the underbody geometry
D Detailled Underbody
S Smooth Underbody
Third Group of Letters: describes the configuration of the mirrors
wM with Mirrors
woM without Mirrors
Fourth Group of Letters: describes the configuration of the wheels
wW with Wheels
woW without Wheels
Accordingly the abbreviation E_S_woM_wW describes the estate back configuration with a smooth underbody, without mirrors and with wheels.
To encourage independent experimental and numerical studies, the CAD data of the DrivAer model is available on request. The data is provided either in .IGES or in .STEP format.
