I have written four SAE papers for their Motorsports Engineering Conferences. These are available from SAE for $10 or $8 for SAE members. They can be delivered by physical mail or E-mail. They can be faxed for $30 or $24 for SAE members. SAE can be accessed at http://www.sae.org/
For the 1998 Conference I wrote the following
Asymmetric Roll Centers - SAE 983085. You can access the paper at http://www.sae.org/servlets/productDetail?PROD_TYP=PAPER&PROD_CD=983085
A Method for Data Alignment - SAE 983087. You can access the paper at http://www.sae.org/servlets/productDetail?PROD_TYP=PAPER&PROD_CD=983087
For the 2000 Conference I wrote a paper on using data acquisition to train test drivers at the Transportation Research Center in Ohio.
Training Test Drivers with Data Acquisition - SAE 2000-01-3568. You can access the paper at http://www.sae.org/servlets/productDetail?PROD_TYP=PAPER&PROD_CD=2000-01-3568
For the 2004 Conference I wrote a paper on driving techniques. This was based on research done with the Driving Simulator and then tested by Roger Schroer at the Transportation Research Center.
Driving the Traction Circle - SAE 2004-01-3545. You can access the paper at the SAE web site.
Several years ago I wrote a series of articles entitled "The Fundamentals of Data Acquisition" for Racer Magazine. These articles will soon be available on this web site. See Fundamentals - part 1, Fundamentals - part 2, Fundamentals - part 3, Fundamentals - part 4 and Fundamentals - part 5.
The printed documentation for the Racing by the Numbers Debrief3 Data Acquisition program contains a chapter on data acquisition procedures. It is included as well. See Data Acquisition Procedures
Version 4.00 of the Suspension Geometry program introduced Force-Based Roll Centers.
These are described in Force-Based Roll Centers
