“The house starts with basement, car starts with chassis”
The Ultimate gratification for an engineer is his alluring design. Test out your designing skills and delineate the prototype of a chassis. Coruscate the prototype without any aid of modeling software and dispatch out through hands on work. Get to your nerves and flaunt to the world your exquisite prototype. Cast a spell with your intricate and elegant designs and leave the audience spell bound!
To design a chassis, as per the given specification within the stipulated time. The chassis should be designed to withstand all kind of loads.
General introduction about the chassis (history, types, dynamics beyond designing).
A pouch containing
Copper wire could be cut accordingly as per your design. Effective usage of wire is key to design. Total length is not fixed as your chassis may be suited for coupe, hatchback, sedan, truck or race cars. At same time your wheel base, track and suspension dimensions are vital as the chassis holder (used for testing) is made with these as reference dimension. If your chassis fails in this case, testing cannot be done. On completion your chassis will be evaluated based on your design. Evaluation based on dimension and load test.
Chassis is mounted on the chassis holder & dimensions will be measured as per the given specification. Accuracy in dimension earns more points.
The chassis base will be supported on holder with help of your suspension at certain height. It will be made sure that there will no horizontal movement of chassis. Gradually applied loads of 250-500g will be placed on your chasse. A vertical scale is mounted on the chassis holder to measure the deformation due to load. Smaller deformation earns more points.
Chassis will be locked on the holder with help of clips at certain height. An arm is fixed to the front axle and parallel to it, one end of arm rests freely and other end has provision to carry loads. On applying the load the deflection of arm is measured in the vertical scale mounted on the holder. Smaller deflection earns more points.
