Aerodynamic and physique adjustments for lowered drag, high-speed balance and elevated cornering strength: spoilers, air dams, wings and ground-effects units. the best way to alter and organize brakes for optimum preventing strength and dealing with.

the main whole resource of dealing with info to be had. “Suspension secrets and techniques” defined in simple, comprehensible language so that you might be the professional.

Rigorous application of these rules involves much work and for everyday test work the “correction factors” applied to measurements of combustion air consumption (the prime determinant of maximum engine power output) described in Chapter 14 should be perfectly adequate. , and a long list of auxiliaries that may or may not be driven by the engine is provided. It is specified that in any declaration of brake power the auxiliaries operating during the test should be listed and, in some cases, the power absorbed by the auxiliary should be given.

The demands of EN ISO 13849-1 regulations relevant to the automotive powertrain industry are, at the time of writing (mid 2011), under active discussion and some confusion. Many authorities believe them to require the treatment of the cell structure as a “machine guard” and therefore to require a dual-processor, “safety” PLC-based system to prevent access to the cell, unless under very specific conditions. In the numerical Safety Integrity Level (SIL) scoring required within EN 62061, typical powertrain test cells have been graded as SIL level 2 and negotiations with accredited national organizations 22 Engine Testing ¨ V are ongoing in an attempt to arrive at a mutually acceptable level of such as TU integration, practices, and the required SIL status of various levels of test facility upgrade.
