Abstract

Two chassis frames of race car have been designed and developed according to the specifications of UTeM Formula VarsityTM 2012 (FV2012). FV2012 is an event to test students’ analytical and technical skills in designing, analyzing and fabricating a race car. In this section of report, the design and development of the chassis frame of the race car are presented. Commercial computer aided design (CAD) software is used in design and analysis stages. Once the results of the analysis are desirable, actual chassis frame fabrication is performed using available materials. Standard processes of cuttings, fittings and welding are performed in chassis frame mock up and fabrication. The product is later assembled together with suspension systems, steering linkages, brake systems, engine system, and drive shaft systems. The accomplishment in final fittings and assembly of the race car and its reliability demonstrate an excellent design for manufacturing (DFM) practices of the chassis frame.
