In 2014, the Formula 1 technical regulations changed and they introduced a small capacity V6 turbocharged engine with energy recovery systems (ERS). The ERS consists of two electric motor-generators: one is attached to the turbocharger shaft; and the second is attached to the crankshaft. The power rating and energy...
Saab delivers world-leading products, services and solutions for military defence and civil security worldwide. Its Gripen fighter is the first of a new generation, multi-role fighter aircraft that is the most complex and advanced plane Saab has ever built. The fighter is equipped with the latest technology, enabling it...
WMG, formerly Warwick Manufacturing Group at the University of Warwick, is using Dymola modelling technology to help develop the next generation of low carbon vehicles. The programme, part of the £29 million West Midlands-based Low Carbon Vehicle Technology Project (LCVTP), is an advanced research project which will ensure Britain’s...
McLaren Racing, the operating arm of the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes Formula 1 team, and Dassault Systèmes (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), a world leader in 3D and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, are pleased to announce a new partnership to further enhance racing car development efficiency. The agreement sees McLaren...
The complexity of automotive powertrains is increasing. As a result it’s becoming increasingly difficult for engineers to determine the optimum specification for the system. The proliferation of control systems also adds to the complexity of the task and increasingly simulation is being used to assist in the development of...
Since moving from the UK to the USA in 2018, I’ve noticed various little differences beyond the obvious between the two countries. Some are positive differences, like actual sunshine, decently sized parking spaces, drive-thru post boxes and cheap petrol. Other differences however are less than ideal, such as polar...
Variable valve timing on the effect of brake specific fuel consumption (BSFC) improvement: a study at part load using VeSyMA – Engines
The effects of continuously variable valve timing (VVT) are relatively well known. This blog post carries out an investigation at part load condition (3000 RPM, 3 Bar BMEP) for a three-cylinder 1 Litre SI engine with VVT to analyse the benefit of VVT on fuel consumption. All experiments are...
With the ever increasing electrification of ICE (Internal Combustion Engine) ancillaries and sub-systems, holistic approaches to quantification of benefits is essential. Historically and even in present day, vehicle design is still siloed to an extent. Each department is concerned with the design of their own systems using boundary conditions...
To the uninitiated, the Indy 500 seems like a simple event. 200 laps (500 miles) around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, a 2.5 mile long banked oval circuit using single-seater, open wheel IndyCars. Sounds simple enough, doesn’t it? Well… it isn’t. As with any top level Motorsport, drivers straddle the...
I am always of the opinion that a large amount of small tweaks to the way we work every day will not only make our modelling more efficient, but also more enjoyable. So, here’s another relatively small tip that will speed up your modelling available in Dymola 2020 onwards....
