Back with more updates. It’s clear that responses / following is low because not too many people really understand the point of AVS.
To break it down AVS (Advanced Vehicle Simulator) is exactly that : a simulator. Not in the sense of a matlab simulation but in the sense that people who are serious about flying use Flightsims – those who know their onions when it comes to automotive vehicle technology and enjoy motor racing – use racing simulators.
In opening with this statement understand that the work the past weekend was to develop a mechanism for evaluating and the simulation of a camshaft.
Digest that. We’re talking the simulation of air velocity over valve faces both intake and exhaust side coupled with the tensile loading of valve springs and other forms of inertia robbing components.
In the end I’m proud to say that I’ve managed to do just that – simulate a camshaft, the upgrading of one, the changing of valves and springs (and more) and the effect it has on power production / performance as compared to the real world.
All of this effort is for what? Simply put – you guys – the guys that enjoy realistic simulators and the challenge of setting up a vehicle correctly for your chosen discipline.
This hints to the seriousness of AVS as a whole but there is much more I purposefully leave out which will be revealed much later in development – it’s definitely worth the wait.
