Measurement Technologies for Formula One Engines

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

Summary

In order to attain an accurate grasp of physical phenomena in the high-speed measurement environment of a Formula One engine, it is necessary to be equipped with measurement systems capable of high-volume, high-speed sampling. In addition, the accuracy of sensors and the vibration resistance of measurement equipment are important factors. It is also necessary to reduce the size and weight of measurement systems in order to conduct measurements during circuit driving. To respond to these performance demands, a variety of high-performance engine measurement systems were used in Formula One development projects.
This paper will discuss combustion diagnosis using a misfire detection system, measurement of combustion pressure and crankshaft behavior during circuit driving, oil pressure measurement, friction measurement, and the visualization and measurement of the fuel spray and in-cylinder flows.
