Flow around a moving automobile is the unsteady high Reynolds number flow, and shows complex separated flow phenomena. The investigation and control of such a separated flow has a very important role in the production of automobile with high aerodynamic performance, such as low drag, good cross-wind stability, low wind-noise level, etc.
