Profound Effects

The little trim tabs were checked out next, and for such small devices these had profound effects. The baseline configuration featured the tabs on the low' setting, so table 3 (below) shows the effects of fitting them In the 'high' position, and of removing them altogether. Of all the configuration changes made during this session, this one was the most surprising, and the effect of these seemingly small adjustments deserves some thought. Essentially, the trim tabs were incredibly efficient at...

Recollections By Graham

Much to my amazement, this is the 19th issue of Racecar Engineering for which I have been responsible. Even so, I am very aware of being the new kid on the block. It is impossible to have accumulated the fund of anecdotes and stories from which Que tit in and Tony can draw, given their time served with the publication, but there are a couple of events that stand out for me in the last 18 months. One such was my first visit to the Performance Racing Industry show in Orlando, The initial...

The Moment Of A Force At A Point

6 we see that wherever we slide force F along its line of action, it always gives the same moment M at the arbitrary point P. The vector product and its moment can replace the second axiom of statics given earlier. Modern vector theory is used in many different fields besides mechanics, such as structural engineering, aerodynamics, electrodynamics, quantum theory and more. So moments are at the core of much of modern engineering and science. However, the practical understanding of moments is...

Above like many of the great racecar designers, Broadley started his career behind the wheel, seen here in 1957 In one of his early 750 Motor Club excursions Right Broadley (middle right) discussing the latest in pit lane fashions In 1961 the drivers had to be able to see behind through a rear view mirror. However, the air ducts to the carburettors made it impossible to see-through the steeply raked rear window. Tony Southgate, who was working for Broadley at the time recalled, 'We had made...

Motec Simulated Traces

Results for two totally different dampers Results for two totally different dampers damping ratios are telltale signs this is a high downforce car . The high damping ratios immediately suggest that body control is paramount. Looking at the bump at 1 3mm s the damping ratio jumps to 2.03. This indicates the damper engineer is trying to give some feel to the car, as well as load the tyres. Beyond this range the dampers blow off to a low ratio to allow the car to ride the bumps. In rebound from...

The Diesel Revolution

By 2002, though, the Audi Sport engineers had their sights set on the next project - the R10 TDI, a diesel-engined successor to the R8. 'We'd been involved with discussions on the rules since the very beginning. We sat down with Daniel Poissenot and Daniel Perdrix from the ACO in January 2002 in Ingolstadt and, over a beer in the evening, talked about racing in the future and the Idea came out that we should build a diesel. That's where It started,' explained Audi's head of engine technology,...

Electronic Rain Light Switch

CARTEK HAS RECENTLY released a new dedicated rain light switch, offering three pre-defined modes of operation. By utilising a small microprocessor in the toggle switch drivers are able to select whether the light Is off, on or flashing, the flashing option allowing drivers to warn cars behind if they are stationary on track. The switch will work with any FlA-homologated LED rain light, and is easily integrated into existing wiring systems. See www.cartek.ttiz for more information
