Abstract

In this work, a chassis frame (UGO M15A model) with emphasis on FSAE application was developed. Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) tools such as SOLIDWORKS CAD, SOLIDWORKS Simulation, Autodesk force effect and Autodesk INVENTOR Professionals was utilized in the course of design. The design and analysis of the UGO M15A Chassis frame was conducted with a parametric approach adopted from Prof. Peter Wright of the famous text (F1 Technology), which was performed in a systematic and systemic manner. Every progression of design was assessed and interpreted in detail in this dissertation. The primary goal of increasing the torsional rigidity and stiffness to be above 2000N-m/deg. was achieved from our Finite Element Analysis (FEA) also achieving a weight of 56kg keeping the mounting points for the suspension and engine in mind, never neglecting ease of access, assembly and maintenance. This will help to facilitate easier suspension tuning and also to resist bending and torsional deflection. The project complied with all of the templates and envelopes required by the FSAE 2015 rules. The work serves as a guide to developing a high performance race car for the FSAE competition and will foster the ingenuity of designers by making the proposed indigenous car possible in view of the local content initiatives in Nigeria.
