Abstract
Aerodynamics is the study of moving air's properties and the interactions between moving air and solids. Rider gets slammed into air particles while riding that gets compressed once rider hit them and then become spaced out once they flow over the rider. The distinction in atmospheric pressure from your front to your back creates a retardant force. The force that's perpendicular to the oncoming flow direction is the lift force. It contrasts with the drag force. Aerodynamic shapes reduce this pressure drag and lift by minimizing that difference in pressure and allowing the air to flow more smoothly over your front, reducing the low-pressure wake behind the cyclist and reducing this drag, and increasing speed in this paper; fairings designed. NACA airfoil as a base, fairings are designed using CATIA.CFD analysis is carried out on the bicycle with a fairing to calculate drag and lift force. As the position of cyclists isn't modified and due to fairing, the air resistance reduces, which may increase the comfort level of cyclists. From this analysis, the economical fairing can be determined, facilitating additional drag and producing less lift.
