The modified Spoiler


The spoiler on my car I stuck, glue that is used for car windows.
At first I had my doubts as to whether a simple glue would, but I preferred that to put him in the car screws. In the end, the glue is very good, the spoiler I have for several months and was impressively strong. As an experiment I hung up on him and did not even move.
So I recommend using this adhesive.
It comes in a tube similar to silicone, use calafatera gun and worth about 5000 pesos in specialized houses. I advise buying the 3M brand.

For other uses of this term, see Spoiler (nautical).
Operation of the flaps on an airplane.
Front wing of a Formula 1 car.

The ailerons, in the field of aeronautics, is a command and control surfaces that are at the ends of the wings of the aircraft and its mission is to carry out the curves on both sides of the plane through a roll movement .

These wings, along with the elevator are controlled by the "horns" which is like the wheel of a car and are named for their shape of horns. In the house Airbus aircraft, these command and control surfaces (ailerons, elevator and rudder) are controlled through a vertical lever.

In competition cars, a spoiler is arranged on planes reversed so that instead of pushing the vehicle makes up downwards. The purpose of this is to increase the normal force exerted on the car floor, thereby increasing the friction between the tires and the track and, consequently, increases the grip and traction of the car.
Operating Principle

The spoiler is designed with a straight face and a curved face, or both curved faces but with one or more developed length, so that air passing through the curve has to do it faster than the face straight. This, according to the Bernoulli principle, generates a pressure drop in the curved face and, consequently, a force due to suction. The idea behind the roll offset is to cause an asymmetric lift on both wings of the aircraft. This would induce a rise (gains lift) and the other down (loses lift). When the ailerons deflect upwards or downwards this effect is achieved.
Knowing that the two basic tasks and virtually all pursuing unique aerodynamics of a racing car, that is reducing the resistance and increasing the down-force, we will explain the operation, the features and applications of the ailerons front of any racing car. Racing cars that have the engine behind, which are almost all (Formula 1 and Formula GT for example), they need the car bow down-force generated so that the front tires have grip on the asphalt. Even without being the reason for the location of the engine, responsible for the need for such down-force, the more down-force, at least in the curve, you have, the less time cornering (almost every race, earn here ....). Anyway, there is more reason, as we shall see, to the existence and installation of the front wings.

In the case of Formula GT, is not allowed, according to standard competition technique, install mode aileron aileron F1 type testing it are placed or plates aletines properly calculated to produce the down-force necessary:

The Down-Force generation, as we saw in a previous article, is simply place the appropriate profile for a given angle and a given surface, a force is generated descensional given. With the addition of Gurney Flaps, for example, we can increase the force, with a very small increase in resistance. Such flaps, analyze them in future articles.
The wheels of an F1 car, generating approximately 40% of the total resistance of the car, so if there is a place where we must stress to reduce drag, it's just, how we can reduce the resistance of the wheels ? The answer is simple: making the flow is not blowing on the wheels for it, taking advantage of the spoiler's ahead, we designed the wing to divert the flow around the wheels, reducing drag.

Why the front wings, are so far ahead? It's about time: the more developed they are, the less force is needed to generate by themselves, so the wheels possess a certain down-force (we can think of the principle of the lever). Obviously, this position is legislated and limited by the technical regulations race. Another feature added with these flow deflectors front, is to prevent the flow of air from the high pressure area to the low pressure area (a tip screen mode, as we saw in a previous article); thus, the resistance of the entire system is considerably reduced and significantly:
