Abstract

This project involves the design, analysis, and manufacturing of a Formula SAE approved racecar with the intent of national competition. Through the division of the major vehicle components into the chassis, suspension, drive-train, controls, and aerodynamics, the project team effectively integrates each subsystem while considering performance, dependability, manufacturability, and cost. This project includes a detailed focus on the engineering of each subsystem; namely individual part designs, strength analysis, optimization techniques, process descriptions, and financial details. The project concludes with Formula SAE competition and submission of design and cost reports focused around the concept of real-world production of the vehicle.
