Air Dam

Air dam is a spoiler fitted across the bottom of a car’s nose to direct the flow of air around the car rather than under it. Airflow beneath the car is also called underflow. It is highly turbulent and energy – consuming, causes lift as well.

Spoilers can enhance your car’s aerodynamics to quite an extent, can be neutral or can make it worse as well(spoil). The function of a spoiler varies at the place where it is installed that is what it’s going to spoil. Most common function of spoiler is to reduce turbulence by "spoiling" the laminar flow of air and providing a cushion for the laminar – like boundary layer. However, other types of airflow might require the spoilers to function differently and to be installed at different positions to take on variety of resistances.
 
Sports cars are most commonly seen with both front and rear spoilers. These are added to help attain high speed maneuverability as they have more rigid chassis and a stiffer suspension. This is because such vehicles have a fairly steep downward angle going from the rear edge of the roof down through trunk or tail of the car which might cause separation of air flow. Bernoulli’s principle comes into play in this process. They spoilers are used for the aforementioned reasons. The rear spoiler is used to get high speed stability and reduce back lift.
 
Now – a – days even, passenger vehicles are being given front and rear spoilers to reduce the drag and cause lift but primarily they are used for styling. Due to their association in the sports segment, they often are praised for being sporty.
