WaveyPhysics: current episodes.
Ep. 000 - The Gymnastic Engineer
Giving you a glimpse of what we're trying to do with this platform and what you can expect to see from it in the future.
Ep. 002 - Vehicle Dynamics and the McLaren 570s
This one is an introduction into 6 fundamentals of Vehicle Dynamics involved with maximising lateral force generation, after this we go for a drive and i give you some subjective driving dynamics assessments of a supercar, the McLaren 570s.
Ep. 003 - Why Don't We See Electric Jet Planes Yet!?
We have electric cars, bikes and even trucks.. Why have we not seen airliners replace the gas turbines for electric motors yet?!
Ep. 001 - What Does It Take To Build a Race Car: The BMW "M235i Racing"
We were with the "BMW M235i R" owned by AP Motorsport for this episode - Here's a brief insight into what it takes to build a race car and where racing teams focus the majority of their attention when making upgrades.
Ep. 004 - Aerodynamics & Design | Part 1
Some insight into the product development process of designing an aerodynamic splitter we current have ongoing.
Ep. 005 - Innovation: The Future of Materials and Design @ Central Saint Martins
We made a visit to Central Saint Martins at University of the Arts in London to view their Design show which featured projects on exhibition from the graduating students.
Ep. 006 - Formula Student: An Aerodynamic & Technical Analysis
We made a visit to Formula Student Competition at Silverstone in July to have a look at some of the technology the teams bought. Great event for students to get involved in during their masters year of university and learn the ropes of motorsport.
Ep. 007 - Electric & Hybrid Cars: Ask an Expert?
We met with Head of Marketing Bud Johnston at Rivervale Car & Leasing to answer some of the questions their customers had regarding electric & hybrid vehicles.
Ep. 008 - Forces & Moments
This episode we're talking about forces & moments and the importance of the Centre of Gravity (CoG) in a range of everyday scenarios. Without understanding of the CoG and how we must optimise our designs to accommodate for it, our world would look very different.
Ep. 009 - How Do You Design a Rear Wing? | Motorsport Aerodynamics Part 2
In addition to the write-up of a recent project also featured on our website, this video explores the design of a rear wing for a GT style application, starting with a DoE (Design of Experiments) to find an optimum profile, we explore the effect of end plates, Gurney flaps and mounting configurations and their effect on lift and efficiency.
