The research project “Energy-efficient Tractor-trailer: Consumption Reduction at Commercial Vehicle Combinations by Using Aerodynamic Principles” was sponsored by the German research community “Forschungsvereinigung Automobiltechnik e. V.” (FAT). The investigations were accompanied by the sub-working group “Commercial Vehicles Aerodynamics” of the working group 9 (AK 9) of FAT. The authors thank these working groups and the FAT for their commitment.
