It has become the need of the day for the evolution of newer and better technologies for various applications. In this paper we introduce a new technique of recovering the kinetic energy which is wasted during the process of braking in Formula one cars. In previous techniques of kinetic energy recovery, the kinetic energy is converted to electrical energy which is stored and later utilized. In this paper we propose a new approach of recovering the energy wasted due to braking by using a flywheel mechanism coupled through magnetorheological(MR) fluid. During the process of braking, the energy is transferred from the wheel to the flywheel(recovery) and during the process of acceleration the energy is transferred from the flywheel to the wheel(reuse). Due to this recovery of energy there is an improved acceleration and a comparatively lesser fuel consumption. The novelty of this proposed mechanism lies in the use of no electrical components such as motor, generator, or battery thereby reducing the overall weight and electrical losses.

SAE MOBILUS® Search Tips
Please note: All terms not contained within quotes, will be evaluated using the OR operator. This means that your search results will contain all results that contain ANY of the entered terms.
AND, OR, NOT
SAE MOBILUS supports the use of the AND, OR and NOT BOOLEAN operators ONLY function with the Advanced Search.
Using the asterisk, ( * ) allows you to search for a partial word. For example, entering a keyword search of aero* will search for any word beginning with aero.
Using the question mark, ( ? ) allows you to search for a word with a single character wildcard. For example, searching for t?re would match both tire and tyre
Words in double quotes " " are treated as a phrase. Conducting a search for "heat model" will return all results in which the exact phrase "heat model" is found, while "heat modeling" would NOT be included.
A term combined with a phrase will be joined with an OR operator.
Searching for Standards
When searching for a standard please use the entire Document Number assigned, which includes the abbreviation. A space can be used, or omitted between the abbreviation and number.
