Motovated Engine and Vehicle Design Engineering Guest Lecture

Greg was once again privileged to provided Graeme Harris’s MG7028 Engineering Systems Analysis students with a guest lecture in Vehicle Design.  This Ara course is a final year Degree Course which incorporated a block course on Motorsport Engineering, check out the block course description video here!

Greg discussed Motovated’s design of several engines as well as our design of trailers and DesignLine buses etc.  Several case studies were discussed, and the importance of correct steering linkage design to minimise bump steer was highlighted as an example.
