'Chip tuning' to improve aerodynamic efficiency?

Prof Ralph Pütz
Chair and managing director
Landshut University / Belicon GmbH
GERMANY
The optimization of aerodynamic efficiency is – in addition to the running gear setup – key to improving lap times. For some time, 'chip tuning' has been claimed to be highly effective. Chip tuning is intended to change the material properties by introducing electrical energy into a material and thus generating periodic shifts of charges and thus changing dipoles. But does this really work? Measurements on wing profiles in the wind tunnel and on race cars during coast-down tests as well as race data acquisition during the race should provide clarity.

Braking performance through innovation

Xabier Ugarte
Chief application engineer motorsport
TMD Performance GmbH
GERMANY
Depending on the route and the application, approximately 15-20% of the lap time is driven on the brakes. As this is an important performance factor in racing, each application needs an optimal, suitable friction pair to maximize braking efficiency. This presentation will look at the performance benefits of Pagid Racing brake products, which are the foundation of Pagid Racing's application-driven development approach. The presentation will also discuss additional technical services from Pagid Racing.

3D hydrogen fuel cells technology modeling: how to model extreme conditions and improve the design

Dr Carlo Locci
Global application specialist - powertrain
Siemens PLM
GERMANY
In this presentation, the newest methodologies to simulate the complexity of hydrogen fuel cells in 3D will be explored. In particular, water management inside the membrane and the gas diffusion layers will be addressed, with particular emphasis on the resulting temperature field. Geometry optimization techniques to improve temperature uniformity will also be introduced.

13:00 - 14:00

Axial-flux motors for high-performance hybrid and EV applications

Dr Michael Lampérth
CEO
Phi-Power AG
SWITZERLAND
Axial flux motor technology is known for its excellent power- and torque-to-weight ratio and has become a popular choice for racing applications. This presentation introduces the different axial motor topologies and reviews their benefits. Following this introduction, the presentation will focus on AF racing applications and look in detail at the use of axial flux technology for the hybridization of touring cars based on an aftermarket solution to hybridize Porsche cars. Within 45mm a 200Nm P2 hybrid module was designed, built and tested, resulting in 50% more peak torque over the engine speed range.

How students ran a winning car in the Mazda MX5 Cup

Ton Serné
Performance engineer
SernéCM
NETHERLANDS
A team of six students on the Minor Motorsport Engineering course at Fontys University in Eindhoven ran a Mazda MX5 Cup car during the 2019 season in the Benelux. This presentation shows what the team members learned during the season and how they were able to set up the car so that it became a top runner in this highly competitive cup class. The key elements of their success will be highlighted: organization, dedication and motivation, and a thorough focus on technology including tire management, data acquisition, aerodynamics and excellent maintenance and preparation.

Additive manufacturing in racing

Amos Breyfogle
Application engineering manager
Stratasys
GERMANY
This session will look into the current trends and state of the art for 3D printing (additive manufacturing) in the racing industry. We will investigate applications for everyone from the small race teams up to F1. Although most of the focus will be on how additive manufacturing can help you, we will also take a look at what we can expect in the future based on the current trends.

13:00 - 13:30

Lunch

13:30

Metal additive manufacturing in high-performance applications

Marius Bierdel
Project manager
Fraunhofer EMI
GERMANY
Additive manufacturing technologies are no longer only used for manufacturing prototypes and mock-ups but also to realize final parts. In particular, the possibility of manufacturing metal parts gives rise to high-performance applications across industries (space, aerospace, security and defense). Fraunhofer EMI is part of Europe’s biggest organization for applied research. With its in-depth knowledge of additive design and manufacturing, Fraunhofer EMI develops customized solutions for its industry partners. Within the presentation we will show the latest results of our research projects, including multidisciplinary topology optimization for satellite structures and lightweight design for the aerospace and automotive industries.
