Optimization of Vehicle Dynamics for Student Racing Cars

Recommended Posts

I was going through this video by Altair University titled: Vehicle Dynamics for Student Racing Cars,  there is a segment in this video explaining how to optimize suspension setup using various pickup points.

There the presenter is using an equation to solve the optimization problem (ref. In video time of eqn is 41:49) i.e. { sum((v_1 + 0.01*v_2)2 } where v_1 is Actual Toe & v_2 is Wheel vertical displacement.

Could you please explain how did he decide to optimize suspension geometry based upon this equation?


Ref video:

As per video at 37 minute presenter try to carryout nominal run for the baseline model. The reason for using the equation is explained at the 38th minute where presenter shows original curve and trying to achieve closeness to the target curve with equation.
