Abstract

WPI's FSAE racecar requires an impact attenuator that can protect the driver and frame when mounted on the front bulkhead of the vehicle. This project included the design, modeling, fabrication and testing of two impact attenuator design. The result was the creation of a single crash protection structure which adequately met all of SAE's rules and regulations for competition.
