The modification thereby delayed the drag rise Mach number, allowing the P-51 to achieve higher speeds.
This shows that the drag rise at yaw, at low yaw angles, is primarily due to the rear end drag increase.
Windsor [9] investigated the drag rise with increasing yaw of different vehicle shapes.
In order to assess the drag rise with increasing yaw angle, and to allow for a quantification of the effectiveness of drag reducing devices, wind averaged drag coefficients have been introduced.
No matter the type of vehicle you drive, wind drag rises with speed, increasing fuel consumption.
