Tufting the Prius
When I first started this blog, I wrote a post on tuft testing which turned out to be one of the more popular articles here. I covered the basics of tuft testing but recently thought I could write a little more about how to interpret tuft behavior and what this looks like in the real world. This article will demonstrate how to set up a tuft testing session, how to get usable results, and how to start analyzing them.
|The orange and blue is coincidental and not some display of school spirit—that’s what the decals are for.
But it doesn’t. The tuft immediately above the mount shows separation, but above the emblem the flow looks the same as before. This mount might affect flow into the cooling air openings, though, so I’ll plan on measuring pressures across the cooling package before I make any decision about installing it permanently with lights.
