ABSTRACT
Aerodynamics makes its major impact in modern vehicles and trucks through its contribution to the costs of opposition to the movement, including force is also running.

They interact with the vehicle causing difficulty in acceleration as well as lifting or crushing forces, lateral forces, roll, pitch, rotation and noise.

With the increasing emphasis on fuel economy and reducing undesirable exhaust emissions, it has become very important to optimize the power requirements, and drag this aspect also plays a major role.

We'll see how through semi empirical equations we can simulate the occurrence of this phenomenon in longitudinal forces within a virtual environment, using electronic means.

KEYWORDS: Simulation, Driving, Car, resistant forces, Vehicle, Traffic, Model.
