Abstract

The aim of this project are to design and analysis a lighter steering knuckle compare to the previous steering knuckle that have been use for Formula Student Racing Car. In 2012, Fakulti Teknologi Kejuruteraan, UTeM has joined the Formula Varsity. During the competition, FTK’s student formula student racing car had an overweight car compared to the other competitors. Since the weight of the components are contributed to the total weight of the vehicle, so by reducing one of the weight part of steering knuckle will help to reduce the weight of the car. Besides that, it also can improves the performance of the formula student racing car. For this project, a design of a lightweight steering knuckle will be made and the analysis design of the steering knuckle result will be compared to the previous steering knuckle of FTK’s student formula racing car. Therefore, a lot of research will be done in order to achieve the main objective of this project. To design a steering knuckle, it will use computer aided design (CAD) software, then analysis the design of the steering knuckle by using computer analysis engineering (CAE) to determine the weight and the strength of the lightweight steering knuckle. The weight reduction for a new design of lightweight steering knuckle will be compared to the previous steering knuckle for FTK’s student formula student racing car. At the end of this project, a new design of a lightweight steering knuckle will be produce to improve the formula student racing car.
