- Helped a lot for learning. Was fun to have a practical assignment as well!» (Good)
- Project was really amazing.» (Excellent)
- Probably the best project/laboratory work so far (not only counting the master program)» (Excellent)

- The pre-study was good. You we"re prepared and knew what data results you wanted. But you shouldn"t have to listen to all those presentations. Split the class into two halves instead and only demand that you should attend to your own class.» (Good)
- The project layout was good, but one thing that can be a problem is the grading. Now everybody in a group gets the same grading. Usually some do very little work and some others do almost the whole project by themself. This is not so fair. I can understand that it may almost be impossible to grade individually, but it is still a really big problem.» (Good)

- two hours in the tunnel is not that much time to full develope an adequate test in it, so that would be good if the project instead of doing in three days for al the groups were spread into one week sothat students would have more time to enjoy the test» (Fair)
- Definetly keep this part to next year.» (Good)
- A bit short of time for further tests.» (Good)
- One of the better labs I"ve done on Chalmers.» (Good)
- More time in the wind tunnel would be appreciated! Very fun and educational to make some "real" tests.» (Good)
- maybe more technical explanations or comments» (Good)
- However 2 hours are too short because we haven"t enought time to test several configurations.» (Excellent)

16. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- The lab.»
- wind tunnel project, guest lectures»
- The windtunnel project»
- Wind tunnel»
- Wind tunnel and guest lectures»
- All the wind tunnel laboratory work with maybe some extra tasks to perform»
- The laboration is a good part of the course»
- The laboratory work was pretty interesting, since the opportunity to work with a wind tunnel is few and far between in a student"s life.»
- project is really nise. Maybe it is possible to add even some more work in a wind tonnel.»
- Guest lectures»
- Project!»
- The windtunnel experiment»
- Wind tunnel assignment.»
- Guest lectures»
- The lab and the teaching assistants which did a good job!»
- The laboratory work in the wind tunnel.»
- the project work»
- wind tunnel lab work»
- the guest lectures, the project work»

17. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Maybe include some CFD design tasks. would make the course complete.»
- more help for exercises, maybe a full correction on the home page would be good»
- Lectures from Phd students.... Especially Betz dserivation and cfd lecture»
- The book is not very helpful and say some very basic notions about aerodynamics.»
- It has to be a lot harder, and much higher workload»
- Due to the numerous guest lectures a lot of things were repeated and repeated since some topics were overlapping as far as the content is concerned. For instance I can"t hear the definition of Cd or Cl any more!»
- Exam looked like the exam on wind tonnels. I think that is not good. There was a completely new question about blockages and it has too many points for it. This question was not discussed so well during the lectures to give so many points for it.»
- The visit to Volvo-windtunnel should be back!»
- More good examples of good design approaches. »
- Remove Betz and Jones equation. No one uses it and it only confuses people.»
- Exercises are too easy (I think).»
- The grading of the project!»
- the course book »
- Not much. Presentations could be more descriptive.»
- more details in the slides, write the units and the name for the variables (formulas). It is quite difficult to understand for foreign people without these information»
- Talk more about CFD.» (den här kommentaren har blivit redigerad i efterhand)
- Remove the Scania guest lecturer. He wasn"t allowed to answer a single question because there were a person from Volvo in the room. What a joke! Nothing we asked were really secretes either.» (den här kommentaren har blivit redigerad i efterhand)

18. Additional comments

- Very interesting subject.. But 22 points on windtunnels and wheels in the exam did not justify the purpose of exam.. it was more like exam about windtunnels and effect of rooling tyres in aerodynamics»
- 10 point of the exam was about blockage, that doesn"t really correspond to the lectures..»
- It can be reasonable to add some words to slides, because cars are nice, but without words slides looks poor and makes it impossible to prepair to the exam with the help of slides. »
- Really good and interesting course!»
- I am very happy to have followed this course.»
- Add a lecture about how it really is to solve a problem with CFD. Maybe some slides that shows how the software works? Maybe adding some post processing assignments? Analyzing the results.»
- A excellent course! Maybe the best course so far.»
- It could be better if all slides could follow a plan given at the begining of the lecture and make difference between 2 parts (I, II...) with references to the book.»
