Chassis-Dynamometer

The Department’s twin-roll chassis dynamometer allows engine transmission and emission tests to be conducted on a complete car or van.

Used by Formula Student to optimise the car’s engine performance, the computer controlled dynamometer simulates real world vehicle loads and provides detailed data on the vehicle performance and emissions. The chassis dynamometer also houses a fully instrumented tyre test-rig, used in research and teaching projects.
