AEROVAULT TRAILERS
Frontal Area and the Myth of the “V” One of the most important aspects of aerodynamic efficiency is frontal area. Some trailer manufacturers make an attempt at reducing drag by simply angling the nose of their trailers into a V shape or incorporating a slope nose. Those tricks don’t reduce frontal area however. It’s an uneducated guess, or at best an attempt in reducing the CD (co-efficient of drag), but, believe me… sharp angles don’t help much. Contact Us for Current Pricing and Availability Read More
