About LOTUS SHARK
Computer simulation is a key part of the automotive development process. Excellence technology has been developed by automotive engineers, using them on many powertrain and vehicle projects at Lotus over the past 2 years.
The philosophy under-pinning Excellence technology is to offer simulation tools which enable the user to generate models very quickly, using a mixture of embedded design criteria and well-structured interface functionality.
Lotus Suspension Analysis (SHARK & RAVEN)
A market leading application for suspension modelling and design from the world-leaders in vehicle ride and handling; the Lotus Suspension Analysis SHARK module is a suspension geometric and kinematic modelling tool, with a user- friendly interface which makes it easy to apply changes to proposed geometry and instantaneously assess their impact through graphical results.
Lotus Engine Simulation (LES
An easy-to-use engine cycle simulation tool, developed for Lotus’ own engine research and development department.
The tool has been developed from our extensive experience of applying performance simulation to engine design projects. The tool can be used to simulate the performance of two and four stroke, gasoline and diesel, naturally aspirated or supercharged and turbocharged engines.
Excellence technology models the gas dynamics in the engine manifolds and enables the complex operating modes used in modern engines to be simulated.
