F18 IITKMS Formula Student vehicle that participated in Formula Bharat 2018

Project Description

The work was focused on design, simulation, manufacturing and testing of a spaceframe chassis for a formula prototype vehicle. A preliminary design was made considering FSAE rulebook and design goals, which was adapted for driver ergonomics using a PVC model of the chassis. The CAD model was tested for various load analysis before freezing the design. A set of experiments were performed on previous season models for the validation of simulation results. The design was then brought into shape using planned manufacturing processes.
