Understeer budget calculation of a light sports car

In this project, you are being assigned a task to select a suitable rollbar for a light sports vehicle and come up with an understeer budget. The rollbar diameter selection and the understeer budget should comply with vehicle level targets like roll gradient and understeer gradient.

Project Highlights

Who can take up this project?
  • If you are a 3rd-year student with an aspiration to become a vehicle dynamics engineer. (As a starting point for your career)

  • If you have a plan to do Masters in motorsport/automotive engineering related courses.

  • Anyone interested in developing their skill sets in vehicle dynamics.

You will be using Matlab/Octave/Spreadsheet.

By taking this course, you will get to know about the suspension design parameters and its significance in the performance of the vehicle. You can also design the vehicle and tune it for better performance.



Importance of Understeer Budget

                     Vehicle performance while cornering plays a vital role in the racing events, racers prefer understeer / oversteer depending on their comfortableness.  If you provide oversteer, the rear wheels will loss its grip from the road and turning takes place in a shorter span of time, but this will results in skidding so the driver should handle it carefully, it depends on the skill of the driver. In case of understeer, the time taken by the vehicle to turn around a corner will be comparatively high and radius of the turn will also be high, it is comparatively safer than  over steer. In order to get this desired understeer/oversteer effect, we have to design the suspension  parameters according, there are various parameters that contributes to understeer, example: weight distribution,roll steer, roll camber,etc..  In this project, we will mathematically model all the contributors of understeer and plot the understeer budget chart to visualise its effect.

  • You will get to know about Suspension tuning parameters
  • Taking Engineering Decision to select the vehicle components to achieve the desired goal(understeer/oversteer).
  • You will study about various contributors that causes understeer effect in the vehicle.
