Vehicle Dynamics

”Driving a car as fast as possible (in a race) is all about maintaining the highest possible acceleration level in the appropriate direction.”
Peter G. Wright

The field of vehicle dynamics is a very complex and interesting one. This broad subject can be divided into the following categories;

  • Cornering
  • Acceleration
  • Braking
  • Steering
  • Suspension Characteristics
  • Aerodynamics
  • Tire Dynamics

    Pertechs has prepared courses for all those categories and they can be combined to a relevant package for your organisation, typically between 1-3 days.

    Race Engineering

    The term ”Race Engineering” is a very broad term and to work as a Race Engineer is perhaps one of the job positions that reach across more areas than any other. In this job you need to have skills in;

  • Mathematics and physics to understand vehicle dynamics and its theories,
  • Mechanical engineering to understand the hardware – the race car - and all its complex sub systems,
  • Human physiology to extract maximum from, primarily the driver, but not to forget, all the rest of the crew around the car,
  • Quick, instinct decision making, to make the right decisions regarding setup and strategic questions in the heat of a racing or qualifying situation,
  • Strategy and planning, to judge different scenarios regarding rules and regulations interpretations, make long term planning regarding for example car development and tire management.

    All this makes this job so extremely challenging and interesting. Pertechs has long experience in this area, all up to the highest international professional level. We can provide custom made courses in this area for your organisation to learn all that takes to create a world championship winning engineering team. Contact us for further details.
