Abstract:
Formula 1 engines have some peculiarities which present unique challenges and problems when they are tested on the dynamometer. Traditional methods of testing have been adapted to this particular case, and special procedures and new methodologies have been introduced to assure the reliability and the accuracy of the results.Many years of experience have allowed Lamborghini Engineering to verify the effectiveness of their equipment and procedures, and thereby overcome the difficulties associated with the need to get accurate data in as short a time period as possible.This paper describes the facilities and procedures used, and discusses some of the problems encountered in testing this very specialized type of engine.
