The data acquisition is essential, and from this, together with the
the rider sensations, coming out the directions on how to improve
the set-up of the motorcycle on the track. The race engineer or the technician
intended to this role must have the capacity and the ability to
interpret the data acquired to translate them into appropriate
directions of set-up. The task is difficult because the data acquired
not explicitly indicate the problems and how to solve them, and then
the technician must rely on their own experience to make the
correct set-up evaluations and choices.
Racing Bike Analysis instead allows you to
exploit the data acquired
to obtain information more easily interpretable and to evaluate in
advance the effects of the changes of set-up that you
intend to do, about the behavior of the motorcycle and of the tires.
In fact the software through the data acquired calculates the
dynamic behavior of the motorcycle , this allows firstly
to analyze the performance in a more clear and explicit.
PERFORMANCE ANALYSIS Just to give you an example, thanks to the calculations of the
software you can see point by point of the track, where is in
crisis the front and where the rear. This is very useful both for
a comparison with the driver's feelings, both to understand where
should intervene to improve the performance depending from the
features of the track.
Furthermore you can see the friction coefficient that
offered the tires in traction, braking, and cornering, in every point of
the track. The analysis of the friction coefficient, unlike
of the acceleration, allows to really see how
the tires have worked regardless of the features of the
track and by the load. This allows you to understand the situation immediately.
|In fact, you can see in
which points the rider is not able to exploit the tires,
if the difficulties are general and may depend from the
conditions and characteristics of the asphalt, or if it
are limited to a few stages, traction, braking, corner entry, corner exit, and then understand immediately
on which area of the set-up is necessary to intervene to
improve the performance.
CALCULATION BEHAVIOR OF THE SUSPENSIONS and MOTORCYCLE BALANCE
Already from these aspects is easy to understand how thanks to the software
Racing Bike Analysis the phase of analysis will become much easier! But beyond that the sofware also calculates the behavior
of the suspensions and how it affects on the motorcycle balance.
|Then will be
possible to see how the suspensions work during
the lap and how this translates on the weight distribution,
the center of gravity and the wheelbase of the motorcycle, at every point of
CHECKING MODIFICATIONS SUSPENSION SET-UP
The calculation of the behavior of the suspensions, besides in phase of
analysis is very useful to see how the changes that you
intend to make on the set-up of the suspension change the balance of the
motorcycle and therefore evaluate at any point of the track if the changes
go in the right direction to solve your problems and the
needs of the rider.
|In fact the
software uses the data acquired as a basis for the dynamic calculation
and you must simply insert the new suspension set-up
and perform the calculation again to
see how change the wheel loads and
the motorcycle balance at any point of the track. So even before
to go on track you can analyze the new set-up and
optimize it properly.
CALCULATION TEMPERATURE TIRES ON THE BASIS OF SUSPESIONS SET-UP
|Another key part of the software Racing Bike Analysis is the
calculation of the tire behavior. In fact the software on
the basis of the acquired data and the dynamic calculation, calculates the trend of
the tire temperature during the lap and how it increases
during the laps. This is crucial both in the analysis phase for
understand how the tires are working at every point of the track,
both when you want to analyze a new set-up to see how
this affects the behavior of the tires.
As you have seen from this brief description the software Racing Bike
Analysis not only is able to facilitate the work of technicians and
engineers in the analysis of the acquired data, but is also useful for
verify all the changes of the set-up suspension
that you intend to do, allowing you to analyze how these
influence the motorcycle balance and the tire temperatures.
