"Inside Look" At Dynomation-5 Video
In 1993, early versions of Dynomation™ became
widely recognized by professional engine builders and racers as the world's
leading high-performance engine simulation software. After nearly 20 years
of successful application, continued testing, development and millions of dollars of
further enhancement on the part of three companies (VP Engineering, Motion
Software, Inc., and ProRacing Sim, LLC.) Dynomation-5™
is now available to all engine professionals and serious enthusiasts.
Setting new standards in
simulation technology, Dynomation-5 allows users to “look inside” a
running engine! Dynomation-5 lets you see and analyze the powerful wave
dynamics controlling induction and exhaust flow. For the first time, anyone
can explore the effects of runner lengths, port taper angles, header tubing
and collector dimensions, cam timing interactions, and much more. No other
device or computer program does a better job of helping you understand
internal mass flow. Dynomation-5 displays precisely how pressures and flow
velocities vary at the valve/chamber interface. View induction and exhaust
pressure pluses and mass flow data to gain unprecedented insight into why
specific changes alter power and torque.
And Dynomation5 applies this tremendous modeling
capability to a virtually unlimited range of engines, from humble
single-cylinder engines to exotic V-12 racing powerplants. Design, build,
and test a 1600hp ProStock engines, passenger-car daily drivers, exotic
Sport-Compact Variable-Valve-Timing racers, or motorcycle engines (even
those with megaphone exhaust systems)! With nearly one thousand built in
shortblock configurations, a wide variety of domestic and import induction
systems, hundreds of forced-induction choices, and much more, Dynomation-5
will become your most valuable development tool.
User Interface And Features:
awesome modeling power in Dynomation-5, this simulation package was
carefully designed to be easy and intuitive to use, even for beginners
exploring engine dynamics for the first time! Are we exaggerating?
Not at all. Supplied with an easy-to-read 300 page Users Manual, any user
can learn how finite-amplitude waves (over 10,000 times "louder" than the
typical sound waves we hear every day) move, change, and flow within the
engine. By simply "playing" with Dynomation-5, you can easily see
charge reversion, in-tune and out-of-tune conditions in
the intake and exhaust passages, how cam timing affects mass flow and
much more. To see how easy Dynomation-5 is to use, view the
Video. Because Dynomation has been so carefully crafted, it is the best educational tool on engine pressure-wave
dynamics available anywhere, hands down! And this fact is no better
exemplified by the 3D realtime-rendered, cutaway engine available within
includes a 3D cutaway engine with piston motion and gas-dynamic flow
rendered in real-time and synchronized with the wave-dynamics,
crank-angle results graphs. Simply, drag the graph pointer and watch the
engine move through its cycles, visualizing mass flow, exhaust and intake
pressure waves, flow velocities, and more throughout the entire 4-cycle
process! With the 3D engine, Dynomation-5 helps you see WHY an engine
makes more power or, perhaps even more importantly, uncover and fix the
reasons for poor performance.
Everything about this new
simulation is groundbreaking.
Dynomation incorporates two distinct engine simulation models: 1) A
Filling-And-Emptying simulation that provides extremely 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 Wave-Dynamics
Method-Of-Characteristics 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 and
valve motion, and much more, providing unprecedented accuracy for the
serious engine designer and builder.
integrating these simulation technologies using a carefully-crafted
Direct-Click™ user interface, engine data is seamlessly shared by both
simulation models. Power, torque, engine pressures and more can be displayed
independently, in comparison views, or in a HybridSim™, where simulation results from both methods are
intelligently combined, building on the strengths of each modeling
The complete Dynomation-5 package includes a great deal
more than this. You’ll also find hundreds of other features that have become
ProRacing Sim’s trademarks, including: 1) rapid Iterative™ testing,
2) comprehensive CamManager™ camshaft, cylinder-head-flow and
engine-file import, 3) several built-in calculators for compression ratio,
airflow conversion, and cam-timing math, 4) multiple-engine analysis,
side-by-side, and One-Click QuickComparisons™, 5) professional
multi-page dyno-test reports, and much more. This is the most accurate,
capable, and extensive engine simulation software package ever offered to
the professional or engine enthusiast.
Focus On Dynomation-5 Features:
If you are a serious enthusiast, racer, or professional
engine builder, you will find the tools and features supplied with
Dynomation-5 a valuable additions:
powerful feature of Motion Software simulations. The ProIterator™
retains all the simplicity and ease-of-use of the Quick Iterator™, while adding powerful testing and
analysis capability, including custom ranges, Induction-system Iteration,
analysis of areas under the power and torque curves, and much more.
the graphic-display and data-analysis capabilities of Dynomation-5. Using
this feature, you can add additional data to graphs and/or show ranges for
target power values, clearly label dangerously high pressures, engine
speeds, and more.Additional Simulation Data And Analysis Tools™
adds additional simulated pressures, forces, and other data to the graphs
and tables in Dynomation. The additional data includes: Indicated
Horsepower, Frictional Horsepower, Pumping Horsepower, Mechanical
Efficiency, Gas Force On Piston, Induction Airflow, and Piston
Speed. In addition, port-flow mass analysis data is provided and can
be graphed or viewed on the 3D engine cutaway. Pressure waves are visible
in the ports of the 3D engine and are keyed to the Crank-Angle graph
CamProPlus, S96, CamDoctor Files—adds the capability to import FlowPro flow bench files and a number of cam
Profile files. A comprehensive import dialog allows you to set the lift
for duration calculations, centerlines, etc.
simulation results into a comprehensive "presentation" report of dyno-test
data. ProPrinting™ features include custom graphics, a cover
page with the name and address of your business (or your personal name and
address) and logo, a table of contents, optional text printed at the
bottom of each page (can be a disclaimer, copyright notice or any other
text you wish), optional comprehensive or "mini" glossaries, and a
complete listing of all test data and results at each rpm test point,
including additional engine-data values, pressures, and forces.
Dynomation-5 is supplied with a
full-color, on-disk Users Manual (directly accessible from within the
program). You can
