Abstract

The condition of current modern urban cities with increasing population density under the condition of various problems. One of these problems is the continuously increasing number of vehicles that fills the traffic spaces. To resolve that problem, many proposals containing various solutions are submitted and one of it is to create a flying vehicle. The idea of using flying vehicles has been one of popular interest and the research even dates back to 1926. Unfortunately, public interest of this idea has not been replied mutually responded by aeronautics and automotive industries, thus the development of flying cars has been stale for the past 50 years. In the last decade, flying car development has risen again with creation of prototype models such as the aeromobil and VTOL by uber. As one of the institutes that also take part in researching modern vehicles, the advanced vehicle research team of Universitas Indonesia also plays a role with a target to produce a similar vehicle. One of the aspects that helps this research is the use of wind tunnels to calculate the aerodynamic forces of flying car. This thesis covers the factors that affects the measurements of aerodynamic forces on flying car model based on comparison of simulation results using wind tunnel testing. This research is a quantitative type with descriptive design. The results of this research shows what variables that affects the aerodynamics of flying cars and which aspects that needs to be developed within the design of a flying car. Results of this research shows take-off performance distance of 415 m and landing distance of 329 m.
