Development and construction of car for eco-marathon for participation in competition: Verification,Validation and Testing activities for the DNV Fuel Fighter 2
MetadataShow full item record
The goal of this Thesis is to verify a winning solution for the DNV Fuel Fighter 2, the verification of the design and development will be achieved by a series of verification, validation and testing activities.The Literature review of the report represents the VVT activities during the entire life cycle. The Theory and Methods used in the Thesis are based on A. Engel s Verification, Validation and Testing activities of Engineered Systems . The author has customized those VVT activities so they fit the time and resource constrains of the case of study.The case is the NTNU s fifth entrance to the Shell Eco Marathon competition, The DNV Fuel Fighter 2. The actual repot is a reflection of the first time in SEM s project where an entire Thesis reflects the VVT activities in order to qualify the vehicle.This Master Thesis follows the work that was done in the specialization project 2011 fall in the NTNU. The fall report was focused on the trade-off and requirement analysis and in the definition a high level architecture that could be use in the project. The project work was used as a foundation for the work that was done afterwards in this Master Thesis. The work done during the year is based on the systems engineering effort made from the previous year. The author along with the other system engineer of the project has upgraded the SE effort.The main contribution of the Thesis has been the development of the VVT activities and to prove that they are useful for projects with time and resource constrains. The suggested future work consists of continuing with the use of the VVT strategy performed this year and to upgrade it until the Acceptance stage; where the final user will be the responsible of performing the tests.
