early versions of Dynomation™
became widely recognized by professional engine builders and racers as a
truly useful engine simulation, combining robust modeling with
unprecedented ease of use. After nearly 30 years of successful application
and a small fortune spent on further development, Dynomation-6™ is now available
to engine professionals, automotive engineers, and serious enthusiasts of
Dynomation-6 lets you peer inside a running engine! It reveals (otherwise
invisible) pressure waves and mass flow in cylinders and engine passages.
Dynomation-6 will accurately display how much power an engine will produce,
but it will also show you why it makes that power and where you should put
your efforts to optimize performance!
Although Dynomation-6 is well known for accuracy and a feature-rich
it is remarkably easy to use. All engine components and specifications are
clearly visible. Change components simply by clicking on any Direct-Click™
menu. Dynomation-6 is intuitive; it encourages you to
“play” and explore your ideas. With Dynomation-6 you’ll quickly zero-in on the best combination of
components for your application!
anyone to explore the effects of runner lengths, port taper-angles, header
and collector dimensions, cam-timing interactions, and much more. No other
device or computer program does a better job of helping you understand
IC (internal combustion) mass flow and how it affects engine performance.
Graphs display how pressures and flow velocities vary at the
valve/chamber interface. Easy-to-read graphs and tables give you an
unprecedented insight into why specific changes alter
power and torque.
You can apply Dynomation-6 modeling to a virtually
an unlimited range of engines,
from humble single-cylinder engines to exotic V-12 racing powerplants.
Design, build, and test a
nearly 2000hp ProStock engine or design passenger-car daily
drivers, Dynomation-6 will not only meet your engine
simulation needs, it will become your most valuable development tool!
User Interface And Features:
considerable modeling power in Dynomation-6, this engine simulation was
built from the ground-up to be intuitive and easy to use,
even for beginners
exploring flow dynamics for the first time! Are we exaggerating? Not at
with a clear 300+ page Users Manual, any user can learn how
finite-amplitude pressure waves (over 10,000 times "louder" than the typical sound
waves) move, change, and flow within the engine. For example, Dynomation-6
can visualize charge
reversion on particle velocity graphs, clearly showing in-tune and out-of-tune conditions in the intake and exhaust
Dynomation-6 has been carefully crafted for ease of use (see our
Feature-Focus: New Roll-Up Menus),
it is one of the best educational tools
to study engine pressure-wave dynamics available
anywhere, hands down!
And this fact is no better exemplified by the 3D, real-time rendered, cutaway
engine that can be displayed within
includes a 3D cutaway engine with piston, valve motion and gas-dynamic flow
rendered in real-time and synchronized with the crank-angle
results graphs. Simply drag the graph pointer on any crank-angle graph through the 720-degrees of the
4-Cycle process, and you‘ll see the engine move through its cycles, visualize
mass flow, exhaust and intake pressure waves, flow velocities, and more! The
3D engine in Dynomation-6 helps you see the relationship between crank-angle
graphs and actual engine flow.
Dynomation-6 incorporates two distinct engine
simulation models: 1) A Filling-And-Emptying (FE) simulation that provides
fast mathematical solutions to engine physics, including flow
analysis and common intake- and exhaust-manifold modeling, making this
technique a uniquely powerful and rapid way to "ballpark" engine design with
very good accuracy, and 2) A full
simulation that accurately predicts the complex pressure-wave dynamics
and particle flow in intake and exhaust ducting. The Wave-Action
model picks up where the Filling-And-Emptying method leaves off and
"homes in" on the best port sizes, shapes, runner lengths, header-tubing
sizes, cam timing, valve motion, and much more, providing unprecedented
accuracy for the serious engine designer and builder.
The complete Dynomation-6 package includes a great deal
more. You’ll also find hundreds of other features including: 1)
rapid Iterative™ testing [explained below], 2) a comprehensive CamManager™ tool,
3) import CamPro, CamProPlus, S96,
and CamDoctor profile cam files, also model and
import 10-point cam files (Dynomation-6 comes with a comprehensive library of
both 10-ponit and profile cam files), plus import cylinder-head-flow and engine files, 3) several built-in
calculators for compression ratio, airflow conversion, rocker-arm math, cam-timing math,
4) multiple-engine analysis, side-by-side, and One-Click QuickComparisons™,
5) professional multi-page ProPrinting™ dyno-test reports, and more. This is the
most accurate, capable, and complete engine simulation software package
ever offered to the professional engine builder or avid enthusiast.
