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.

Benefits of this Project

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.

What will you do in this project?

Step 1 - Suspension parameters and its Significance

Step-2: Roll gradient Calculation and Anti Roll bar Selection

Step 3 - Studying the effect of Cornering stiffness, Camber Stiffness and Aligning Stiffness at various normal loads.

Step-4 :Understeer Contribution Chart

 

 

You will come up with a detailed excel sheet that gives the appropriate numbers of the roll bar selection and understeer budget.

  • Rollbar diameter

  • Rollbar stiffness

  • Tire stiffness plots

  • Understeer budget Chart

In this project you will be given with the real-time experimental PSD data of the road, you will write a Matlab/ Octave code to plot the PSD profile of the road. The obtained PSD plot of the given data will be superimposed on the ISO chart to find the road quality. By doing this, you will classify the road according to International Standard Organisation(ISO) .

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.
