azertechnology The surprising aerodynamics behind the Brazuca World Cup football.
The Brazuca World Cup match ball being tested in a wind tunnel of NASA.
Under the guise of World Cup fever, scientists across the globe are seizing the opportunity to examine the aerodynamic properties of what will in all likelihood be the most talked-about object on a global scale over the coming weeks, the 2014 World Cup match ball. The ball, lovingly named Brazuca by the Brazilian people, is the product of a significant amount of research and money aimed at creating the ultimate centerpiece for one of the greatest sporting competitions on Earth.

You could be forgiven for thinking that a ball is in fact just a ball – a stitched, seamed construction of polyurethane, kicked around a patch of earth, incapable in itself of being a source of anger or discontent. Wrong. If you dig a little deeper into the surprisingly controversial history of the World Cup match ball, you will come to realize that every facet in the design of the little sphere has an effect on the way it behaves and moves through the air. Any oversight in this design can make the ball unpredictable as was the case with the late, lamented Jabulani, a ball which exhibited aerodynamic qualities so pronounced that it was described by Brazilian striker Luis Fabian as supernatural in its movements.

automotivedesign So I wanted to introduce something new to this page besides my work so I came up with Feature Friday! Every Friday I will showcase a feature on a vehicle I like, and to start off, I have chosen the wing mirrors on the new and frankly awesome McLaren 650S GT3 race car. There to aid aerodynamics, it looks like weapons on the sides of the car!

  •   sauberf1team @youngstar3435 Not sure what you mean? Yes, we have a very good relationship with Ferrari (which started long before a German car manufacturer bought and then sold our team). Our relationship with Marussia is more or less limited to competing against them on the track... 16h
