Abstract: Bus is a Major mode of transport in India and the passenger safety is significant during the travel. This Comprehensive comprehension on the literatures available discusses various parameters used to improve the Vehicle Design, Safety, Fuel Efficiency and decrease in drag of the vehicle. The outcomes obtained from CFD investigation is tabulated, and the exploratory outcomes obtained from aerodynamic tests are contrasted and numerical examination and the outcomes are additionally incorporated. The impact of temperature and the wind stream is likewise considered in this investigation. Various kinds of ventilations given in the transport vehicles are recorded, and the outcomes acquired from the various configurations in the structure is considered for opening and closing of Windows (Combination of windows). The cooling air inside the transport straightforwardly relies upon the outside climate condition. By overhauling the current vehicle transport model, the eco-friendliness will be improved and the drag power will be diminished.
Keywords: Drag force, CFD Analysis, Wind Tunnel Test, Vehicle Design, Fuel Efficiency.
