Thread: Pitch point

  1. #1
    We are confused about the pitch point and the side view instant center. Can any one help us in calculating the pitch point location.

    There is a good book on the market...

    Can't you Google it or read some good books (much are referenced in this forum ... that is if you take the time to look for it) and come back with more challenging / educated / useful questions? (useful for you and for everybody else in this forum)

    You give the impression you want everything, immediately, from other people without trying yourself.

    It will also be more inviting for the reader(s) to answer you if you would simply explain what you already know and what you do not understand

    Let me guess.... India ?

    Claude,

    Although I do not disagree with your main point, your reply is rude and unprofessional.

    Additionally, your last comment could be considered racist, or at the very least, imply that you have a bias against Indian teams.

    You would set a better example by not responding. Silence is the virtue of those who are not wise.

    BaseOverApex,

    Claude gave good advice and his comment regarding India is, in my opinion, simply a product of his experience (some research would show you why). Many people are biased against Indian teams because they keep showing up with poorly designed and built cars based on poorly asked questions on this forum. This is changing, which is very good, but there's still a way to go. Deal with it.

    In future, use a signature so people know what team you're from and what your name is.

    Comrade!

    Race Car Vehicle Dynamics is a must have book for any team. Get it now, and it will be useful for the subsequent teams as well.

    Also, if you know how to plot roll centers, you can definitely work this out too. It will eventually come down to pure geometry.

    Keep at it! Keep reading!

    Just goes to show some things never change.

    What exactly are you not clear about with the pitch point and instant center?

    Definitions? Goals of design? Placement?

    Nobody here thinks that. You're missing the point
    Your question is really just a general kinematics question that doesn't need to be asked on this forum.
    Reminds me of a freshman who only stares at a text book and calls it 'studying' and complains he doesn't get mechanics.
