Abstract

This work entails the design and analysis of a braking system based on FSAE application. Different Engineering software like SOLIDWORK and INVENTOR professionals, Mat lab and brake system calculator was utilized to determine the pedal ratio, master cylinders and caliper design, the number of rotors and their geometry. The guiding factors of the design process were maximum braking power, minimal weight and manageable temperatures while maintaining reliability. An approach drawn from Prof. Peter Wright concept was adopted. In this work, every progression of design was assessed and interpreted in details. Data acquired was also interpreted and related back to the assumptions used in the design analysis. The basic aim of this work is to achieve the required standards for brake design in FSAE and to scale through the technical inspection at the competition. For this to be actualized, the system must be able to lock up all the four wheels on pavement from acceleration run. Ergonomics and easy adjustability were also what was considered in this work. 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.
