Transtex had the amazing opportunity to speak with Andrew Mosedale, the Head of Aerodynamics at the Auto Research Center, or ARC for short. Not only did Dr. Mosedale give our team a fascinating presentation on Semi-Truck Aerodynamics, he also gave them a tour of the facilities and permitted them to see the ARC’s Wind Tunnel in action!
