Damper Temperature Control
Each IndyCar uses 4 dampers (shock absorbers) as part of its racing suspension. During race conditions, the dampers dissipate heat due to the rear dampers proximity to the engine and high loads. The challenge is to design a damper heating pad that can be heated or cooled to maintain and monitor an optimal operating temperature of 80˚C +/-5˚C throughout the race. This will require 2 separate heating pad systems (front & rear) with a single control unit.
