Investigating Aerodynamic Balance

Investigating Aerodynamic Balance

This case study focuses on utilizing the aero map feature of OptimumDynamics. In this study we demonstrate two different implementations of this feature. We first look at the effect of changing springs on aerodynamic distribution. We then proceed to study the relationship between bump stop gap and vehicle speed.

Creating an Anti-Roll Bar Database

Creating an Anti-Roll Bar Database

OptimumDynamics can be used to predict the behavior of a vehicle for different setup changes. In this study the effects of the vehicle anti-roll bar (ARB) on percent front lateral load transfer distribution (LLTD) is investigated. This study creates a database of possible ARB combinations.
