Development of Induction and Exhaust Systems for Third-Era Honda Formula One Engines

Article of Honda R&D Technical Review F1 Special (The third Era Activities)

Summary

Induction and exhaust systems determine the amount of air intake supplied to the engine, and as such are critical elements affecting engine output.
In addition, the layout of the induction and exhaust systems affects the vehicle’s aerodynamic performance, and so it must be considered together with vehicle development.
At first, there were few CAE software and computer resources available, and induction and exhaust system components were produced by measurement and guesswork so that development was largely performed on a trial and error basis, but in recent years, the 3D-CAD and CAE software has advanced so quickly, and computer resources have expanded so much, that development is done by simulation.
The enhanced phenomenon elucidation and forecast precision have made it possible to shorten the time it takes to determine specifications and reduce development costs.
