Predicting Certain Aspects of a Cars Performance from Engine and Drivetrein Data

by Nasser Alangari


Submitted : Fall 2014

We will develop a model to estimate the acceleration, velocity, and displacement of a production car. As input to the model will be hp v.s. rpm data, transmission and drive ratios, as well as air drag and mechanical friction along with curb weight. A maple program will be used to facilitate the many iterative-based calculations as well as the graphing and data output.
