Dynamon was invited to speak with Commercial Motor alongside Hatcher Components to highlight some of the key factors effecting fleet fuel consumption. It’s not always just about tyres, aerodynamics are important too.


Dynamon calculates that a 44-tonne artic displaces its own weight in air every 2 miles. That is a given that can’t be altered without reducing the frontal area of the vehicle. But what can be altered is the efficiency of moving that air. Smooth convex curves are needed, which is why an airliner is more aerodynamically efficient than a 40ft container.
