This project has the objective to learn to use CFD free software OpenFOAM focusing on turbulent problems resolution, with the objective of analyzing the aerodynamics of a formula racing car. We had the opportunity to contact with the company Ashenkoff S.L., whose managers were interested in creating a new prototype, the Ashenkoff K100, and they will borrow us resources to make it. The project will consists on the aerodynamic analysis of this new model using CFD software OpenFOAM. Previously, the body of the car will be created according to Ashenkoff specifications; even this design process is not part of this project. There will be explained the necessary theory to understand all its development; after that, it will be explained the analysis of aerodynamics, detailing the contribution to it of each part of the car. There will be also some considerations to improve the aerodynamics on this car and the explanation of why it should be improved.
