Digital Image Correlation Giving a Competitive Edge to Racers
ARAMIS digital image correlation (DIC) is a powerful tool helping Yamaha Racing achieve new levels of performance and success on the track. This innovative technology uses cameras and sophisticated software to optically measure the strain, displacement, and vibration of different components when under load.
ARAMIS can analyze the behavior of their race bikes by measuring the deformation of the frame, suspension, and other components as they are subjected to various loads and stresses. Yamaha Racing can take this understanding of how components behave in different situations, then make adjustments and improvements to increase the performance and reliability of their bikes.
With ARAMIS's ability to quickly and accurately test and help validate FEA Models, Yamaha can quickly identify any issues and make necessary adjustments before they hit the track. By improving old components and innovating with new parts, they ensure they always meet the rigorous standards required for competitive racing.
Companies have even used DIC to study the aerodynamics of their vehicles. By measuring the airflow around a vehicle and how it impacts the parts, they can better understand how to optimize the design, increasing the aerodynamics of components to reduce drag.
Overall, ARAMIS digital image correlation is playing a critical role in helping Yamaha Racing, and others achieve new levels of performance and success on the track. With its ability to accurately measure and analyze the behavior of complex systems, this technology is helping Yamaha Racing to gain a competitive edge and stay ahead of the competition.
