Within the lifecycle of the product, the reduced models are very important for the experimental validation of the prototype. The modelling, simulation and optimization stage precedes the prototype realization, being part of the computer aided design (CAD), computer aided engineering (CAE). The physical model is a physical layout or test setup that reproduces, on a small scale, the features of the original system, in our case the vehicle body layout. The paper presents an automobile reduced model, with the aim to study the aerodynamic theory. The paper presents the algorithms of conceptual design of the scale reduced model, namely: 3D modelling, small scale modelling technology and geometric shape optimization solutions using different CAD-CAE programs.
