Formula Frame Alternative Design According International Rules Requirements

By Lukáš Ondák


This master thesis describes design of frame construction of Formula Student car. The objective was to reduce weight and increase the torsional stiffness against to last version of the car. Next objective was to prove advantages of alternative frame. This had been achieved by gradual transformation of standard design of frame to alternative with the usage of FSAE alternative frame rules. The weight was reduced by 20% and torsional stiffness was increased by 34% thanks to FEM simulation and sophisticated changes of alternative frame design
