Master Vehicle Dynamics with Claude Rouelle and Racing Legends!

Our motivation

By Claude Rouelle

In the 1970s, Moore’s law established that at constant cost, the performance of semiconductors had doubled every year since 1959, the date of their invention. Several years ago, multiple professors of American universities wondered what the equivalent of Moore’s law was in mechanical engineering.

They quickly realized that the evolution of knowledge and its applications was similar, if not higher, in motorsport.

It is true that due to its demands for agility and performance, motor racing requires rapid and efficient developments not only in mechanical engineering but also in fluid mechanics, aerodynamics, materials (in general and composites in particular), finite elements analysis, chemistry (gasoline, lubricants, tires), thermodynamics, electronics (more particularly in control systems and energy recovery), electricity, simulation, optimization, in lab and on track test conduction, data analysis, validation and many other engineering fields. It also obligates engineers to establish effective communication between the actors of these different disciplines.

Also, recently, due to pressure from the public and governments, the FIA (Federation Internationale de l’Automobile) will impose in the coming years more and more restrictive rules on the consumption of fuel, tires, and brakes and obligation to use recycled materials.

OptimumG, the company I created 26 years ago, is dedicated to public or corporate education (more than 400 seminars, 15,200 participants in 34 countries), consulting and the creation and support of simulation software.

OptimumG and other speakers

The ENIM (Ecole d’Ingénieurs de Metz, France) was interested to have me share 45 years of experience in vehicle dynamics. One of my colleagues (for very specific subjects of mathematics and programming) and I will collaborate for a significant portion of the creation, teaching, and promotion of an ENIM University Diploma devoted to vehicle dynamics.

Several other speakers, and ENIM teachers, with academic backgrounds and/or with F1 and Le Mans car design and exploitation successful experience will also be part of the teaching group.

What will you learn?


Vehicle dynamics and applied aerodynamics
140 hours 


Fundamental aerodynamics. Design, simulation (CFD), validation in wind tunnel and/or on track
