Aerodynamic Package for NTNUs Formula Student Car: From Design to Prototype
MetadataShow full item record
Prototyping is a task with unknown challenges. The necessary steps for producing a prototype of an aerodynamic package for application in FSAE were evaluated. The design is based upon the author?s project work during the autumn of 2012A method for implementing a DRS (Downforce Reduction System) in FSAE using, using standard R/C servos for pitch adjustment has been suggested. Revolve?s simulations have indicated a 60% drag reduction with DRS active and 800 N free braking power from the airbrake. The prototype production process is described from design to finished product. The production cost has also been taken into account in the evaluation process.
