    Speaking on behalf of only myself and Wisconsin Racing:

    Investing time into vehicle dynamics controls, sensor technology, and computer science seems like a good background for being involved in...

    It might be possible to brute-force or optimize (using an fmincon or fminsearch-like function in MatLab) your filter settings to achieve the best correlation to test data. Would require coupling lap...

    Or you can just use a = v^2/r...

    Again, excuse the quick 'n dirty code.

    I have a very similar code, Bill Cobb!

    The code is pretty gross, but it will take latitude and longitude points and convert into discrete corner radii. Basically it constructs an arc between every...

    Reason from the fundamentals:

    F=ma, a =v^2/R, T =Iα. Newton's laws with undergrad mechanics of materials can get you a long way in FSAE if they are understood well across the vehicle. I.e. it is...

    Completely agree with that message.

    My question is referring to how to inspire/motivate students, defining the "why" of FSAE. If the message is just to learn, some students might suggest that's...

    Fair point - I would agree.

    From my perspective: if the team surrounds their actions and intrinsic motivation sprouts from the concept of the desire to win, learning is inevitable, and learning is...

    I agree, JulianH.

    In a few FS competitions, some developed teams are unable to compete due to a registration slot constraint. For this case of demand exceeding supply, a rules quiz being...

    Mass of cone, velocity of impact, and elastic collision condition may be good starting parameters.

    Building test pieces and attempting to replicate such an event could lead to design conclusions. ...

    Hello Bharadwaz,

    Remote load transfer especially with many load configurations may be a wise route to start doing finite element studies. Remember where all of the loads are coming from, where...
