Default Re: Any Programmers around here?

there are literally hundreds of dyno designs, mine would use the moment of inertia of a flywheel. Torque=(angular acceleration) x (moment of inertia). So id use the program to record the angular acceleration and i would calculate the moment of inertia of the flywheel, so using both the values i can calculate torque. Then you just multiply that by angular velocity to get power.

Yea im working on labview and i think this owuld be pretty easy if i can just get my licence for it back...
