Rccc2012 part1

  1. 1. RC Crew Chief 2012 Build a virtual RC car model, test, analyse, and compare results
  2. 2. RC Crew Chief 2012 <ul><li>Provides simulation tools and computer models to aid in car setup. </li></ul><ul><li>Models 4 main components of electric RC cars </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Chassis, Motor, Battery, ESC </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Build a car with any combination of components and simulate the performance before you hit the track. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Interactively evaluate chassis setup changes </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Run acceleration, speed and distance versus time simulations </li></ul></ul>
  3. 3. RC Crew Chief 2012 <ul><li>Build electric motor models from inertia dyno data </li></ul><ul><li>Built-in calculators for CG, Coil Spring rate, Anti-roll bar (ARB) rate, gear ratio, and wire resistance </li></ul>
  4. 4. Main Page Build your car using the Car Manager Or build/edit one of the components
  5. 5. Setup Page 1 of 3- Suspension Edit, save or create new setups Click graphic to select links Suspension Properties Double click graphic to zoom in and pan Roll Centre location
  6. 6. Setup 2 of 3 – Shocks/Springs/ARB Click to select shock position Select Springs and ARB from drop down lists Suspension properties update as values change
  7. 7. Setup 3 of 3 - Misc Gearing Some text boxes to record additional info
  8. 8. Setup Page – Suspension Properties Static Roll Centre heights Contribution of Spring to chassis stiffness in roll Ride Rate is chassis stiffness in vertical direction Contribution of ARB to chassis stiffness in roll Units can be set to metric or imperial Chassis Roll sensitivity in degrees of roll per lateral g Values update as you change settings
  9. 9. Handling Page Change Springs, ARB’s and roll centres to graphically see effect compared to selected setup for three corner phases, entry, mid and exit Corner entry Drop down selection boxes Mid Corner Corner exit
  10. 10. Handling – Corner Entry Weight on each wheel Car acceleration 1g turning .5g braking Bar graph indicates if setup tendency is towards push or loose. Blue loose, green push. Lollipop at end of each wheel indicates how much load is on the tire. Red circle is Setup. Filled Circle is new values. If red circle is inside filled circle then load on tire has increased
  11. 11. RC Crew Chief 2012 <ul><li>Next slide series will look at Acceleration pages and the built-in calculators. </li></ul><ul><li>Program is currently in final debugging stage. </li></ul><ul><li>Beta testing to start in 1-2 weeks. </li></ul><ul><li>Stay tuned!!!!!!! </li></ul>
