early versions of Dynomation™
became widely recognized by professional engine builders and racers as the
World's leading engine simulation software, combining robust modeling with
unprecedented ease of use. After nearly 20 years of successful application
and millions of
dollars of further development Dynomation-5™ is now available
to engine professionals, automotive engineers, and any serious enthusiast of
Dynomation-5 lets you peer inside a running engine! It reveals (otherwise
invisible) pressure waves and mass flow in cylinders and engine passages.
Dynomation-5 will accurately display how much power an engine will produce,
but it will also show you why it makes that power and where you should put
your efforts to optimize performance!
Although Dynomation-5 is well known for high accuracy and technical detail,
it is remarkably easy to use. All engine components and specifications are
clearly visible. Change components simply by clicking on any Direct-Click™
menu. Dynomation-5 is intuitive and nearly effortless to use; it encourages you to
“play.” With Dynomation-5 you’ll quickly zero-in on the best combination of
components to optimize power in any engine!
anyone to easily and
intuitively explore the effects of runner lengths, port taper-angles, header
and collector dimensions, cam-timing interactions, and much more. No other
device or computer program does a better job of helping you understand
IC (internal combustion) mass flow and how it affects engine performance.
displays precisely how pressures and flow velocities vary at the
valve/chamber interface. Easy-to-read graphs and tables give you an
unprecedented insight into why specific changes alter power and torque
(see our Feature-Focus on new Graphs And Tables).
Dynomation-5 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, Sport-Compact engines with Variable-Valve-Timing, 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 not only meet your engine
simulation needs, it will become your most valuable development tool!
User Interface And Features:
awesome modeling power in Dynomation-5, this engine simulation was
built from the ground-up to be intuitive and easy to use, even for beginners
exploring engine dynamics for the first time! Are we exaggerating? Not at
with a clear 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" in 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. Because
Dynomation-5 has been so carefully crafted for ease of use (see our
Feature-Focus on new Roll-Up Menus),
it is the best educational tool on engine pressure-wave dynamics available
anywhere, hands down!
And this fact is no better exemplified by then 3D real-time rendered, cutaway
engine that can be displayed within
includes a 3D cutaway engine with piston motion and gas-dynamic flow
rendered in real-time and synchronized with the crank-angle results graphs. Simply drag the graph pointer through the
720-degrees of the 4-Cycle process, and watch the engine move through its
cycles, visualizing mass flow, exhaust and intake pressure waves, flow
velocities, and more! The 3D engine in Dynomation-5 helps you see the
relationship between crank-angle graphs and actual engine flow (see our
The Unique 3D Engine Display).
Dynomation-5 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
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, valve motion, and much more, providing unprecedented
accuracy for the serious engine designer and builder
Dynomation-5 Simulation Models).
integrating these simulation technologies, engine data is seamlessly shared by both
simulation models. Power, torque, engine pressures and other simulation
results 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 technology.
The complete Dynomation-5 package includes a great deal
more than this. You’ll also find hundreds of other features including: 1)
rapid Iterative™ testing [explained below], 2) a comprehensive CamManager™ tool,
3) import CamPro, CamProPlus, S96,
and CamDoctor profile cam files, also model and
import 10-point cam files (Dynomation-5 comes with a comprehensive library of
6000+ camfiles), plus import cylinder-head-flow and engine files, 3) several built-in
calculators for compression ratio, airflow conversion, rocker-arm math, cam-timing math,
4) multiple-engine analysis, side-by-side, and One-Click QuickComparisons™,
5) professional multi-page ProPrinting™ dyno-test reports, and more. This is the
most accurate, capable, and complete engine simulation software package
ever offered to the professional engine builder or avid enthusiast.
