Feeling nerdy about car physics and tech specs?
It’s time for another interesting Niels Heusinkveld tech video in which he analyzes the implementation differences between the iRacing and Assetto Corsa Competizione Aero Balance Maps.
An Aeromap is a way of visualizing the relationship between different parameters. For example, a geographical map can show altitude as a function of longitude and latitude. In the case of a racecar the aerodynamic lift, drag, and balance can be shown as a function of car set-ups such as front and rear ride height or rear wing angle. So, an aero map effectively visualizes the relationship between the geometrical properties and the aerodynamic properties of a racecar. (Racecar Engineering)
Heusinkveld Engineering is a Dutch company that offers a broad array of products and services to the real and virtual racing scene. From advanced vehicle simulation software to simulator hardware. Sim Racers might also know the company’s founder Niels Heusinkveld as the main physics creator for the Automobilista racing simulator by Reiza Studios.
