    Abstract :

    Aerodynamic study is the basis for any automobile industry as it gives the value for drag force which acts parallel and in the opposite direction of the motion of the automobile body. Drag force is a frictional force which affects the motion of a body. In this paper, frictional resistance effects have been studied to identify the effect of shape on friction and hence on drag force. Drag force affects the performance of any moving objects. So it is necessary to minimize the effect of drag. For that, change in shape of a body is done for a identical cross sectional area.Performance is carried out using suction type subsonic wind tunnel and digital strain gauge to measure drag co-efficient of different shapes at different velocities. Pitot tube is used to measure velocity of the flow.
