Like race cars, the semi trucks that haul tons of freight back and forth across the country are often fitted with devices such as spoilers, ride skirts, or rear tail fairings to reduce drag and increase fuel efficiency. A recent report published by the University of Notre Dame offers a way to decrease drag and improve fuel efficiency without adding these bulky devices or substantial redesigning the vehicle.
