Driven by the need for energy efficiency and legislative requirements for the reduction in carbon dioxide and other emissions, aerodynamics has never been more fundamental in vehicle design. Efficient and well-planned aerodynamics can make huge savings in terms of fuel and energy-use, therefore aerodynamics is a key part in meeting upcoming Net-Zero targets in 2030.
Taking place every two years and now in its 14th iteration, the Institution's prestigious International Conference on Vehicle Aerodynamics will once more showcase the latest developments and technologies in aerodynamics, aeroacoustics and aerothermal design, test and development.
In this 175th Anniversary year of the IMechE, the focus for this year's conference will focus on aerodynamics within the context of new propulsion systems and new technologies.
Don't miss this opportunity to meet and learn from engineers from across the entire vehicle spectrum, covering passenger vehicles, motorsport, road bikes, supercars and more, as aerodynamic design is critical to vehicle efficiency.

This event is COVID-safe: We are keen to return to in-person events and enjoy the benefits of connecting face to face. Whilst Covid-19 continues to circulate in the UK, we are taking steps with the venue to keep event participants as safe as possible in order to attend IMechE events with the confidence.
Physical distancing Attendees are requested to maintain a distance of 1m+ from each other. Where possible, room layouts and seating will be arranged to facilitate this.
Masks / face coverings The wearing of masks/face coverings is encouraged (although not compulsory), unless satisfactory social distancing, ventilation or air sterilisation is not possible, in which case it will be compulsory.
Covid testing Attendees are requested to undertake a Covid test (lateral flow or PCR) a maximum of 24 hours prior to the start of the event/meeting.
Ventilation and air sterilisation Where possible, rooms will be well ventilated or fitted with air sterilisers to significantly reduce the risk of transmission.
Catering Where possible, catering will be provided in such a format as to facilitate social distancing.
