Thread: Lap time simulation

  1. #1

    Lap time simulation

    I am a first year (going on second) and I was researching lap time simulation. I got through CS160, so I know a little python. The search function is going bananas. Any suggestion for sources of where to start coding a lap time simulation. I have found resources like matlab and what not. But they just discuss it at a high level without getting into how to code it. I own the nowlin, milliken and rowley books. The 2 most prominent suggestions were from people that make software for simulation...which were buy my software. lol. Is there a race car simulation for dummies?

    If you want to see what others have done, there is a lot of info on this forum. The Search isn't very good so use Google site search, this string gave me ~60 hits, many of them are worth reading:
    site:fsae.com "lap time simulation"

    If you want cookbook code, that's going to be harder to find!

    OptimumLap is free of charge. It is simplified but still useful mass point lap time simulation software. It will give you a good idea of of the minium your software should be doing.

    Welcome back FSAE.com ! Not sure what was wrong, but it's been several days (or a week) that I couldn't access the site.
