  5. 5. Concurrent Engineering Principles Used<br />Design for Manufacturing<br />Design for Cost<br />Design for Serviceability<br />
  6. 6. Design for Manufacturing<br />Redesigned frame has reduced amount of welded joints <br />Reduced the number of tubing for the frame<br />
  7. 7. Redesign of Front Hoop<br />2009 front hoop had too many butt welded joints, these are replaced with bends.<br />
  8. 8. Reduction in Frame Tubing<br />Removed tubing from engine mounting structure<br />
  9. 9. Design for Costs<br />Manufacturing Costs were reduced by :<br />Replace welds with bending when possible<br />Reducing number of tubes for frame<br />Material Costs<br />Steel used for frame increased but only by a small amount to make up for loss rigidity.<br />
  10. 10. Design for Serviceability<br />Main hoop bracing redesign for engine serviceability.<br />
  11. 11. FEA Analysis and testing<br />
  12. 12. Torsional Rigidity<br />Without proper rigidity significant frame bending occurs (strain)<br />With major flexing in the frame, clearances will be affected<br />Frame flex induces forces not originally intended<br />
  13. 13. Torsional Rigidity testing<br />Ft-lbs<br />Units:<br />degree<br />
  14. 14. 2010 Frame Rigidity<br />
  15. 15. Race Conditions Simulation<br />Applying loads during race conditions <br />Most extreme case: Turning<br />
  16. 16. FSAE Autocross Conditions<br />D7.2 Autocross Course Specifications & Speeds<br />D7.2.1 The following standard specifications will suggest the maximum speeds that will be encountered onthe course. Average speeds should be 40 km/hr (25 mph) to 48 km/hr (30 mph).<br />Straights: No longer than 60 m (200 feet) with hairpins at both ends (or) no longer than 45 m<br />(150 feet) with wide turns on the ends.<br />Constant Turns: 23 m (75 feet) to 45 m (148 feet) diameter.<br />Hairpin Turns: Minimum of 9 m (29.5 feet) outside diameter (of the turn).<br />Slaloms: Cones in a straight line with 7.62 m (25 feet) to 12.19 m (40 feet) spacing.<br />Miscellaneous: Chicanes, multiple turns, decreasing radius turns, etc. The minimum track width will be 3.5 m (11.5 feet).<br />F=20.5slugs*44ft/s^2/29.5ft = 1,331 Pounds of Force <br />OR (66ft/s^2)/(32.2ft/s^2)=2 *Gs<br />
  17. 17. COST<br />
  18. 18. FSAE Cost Guidelines<br />Cost Event – The Cost Event Rules (abbreviated)<br />1. Standardized Prices – The prices for parts, materials and processes have been standardized and the prices in the official Cost Tables must be used. If you use a part or process that’s not in the table there is a procedure for having it added. The standardized Cost Tables will be published through the FSAE website.<br />2. No Receipts – Since prices are standardized no receipts are required – except when requesting items be added to the table.<br />3. No Maximum Cost – You can spend as much as you like on your FSAE car with the understanding that your total cost is a significant factor in your Cost Event score.<br />
  19. 19. 2010 Cost<br /><ul><li>Cost estimate for frame design consisting of 57 tubes and 114 tube ends
  20. 20. Material Costs:</li></ul>- frame weight = 63.25 lbm<br /> - standardized cost = $4.95/lbm<br /> - material cost = $313.09 <br />
  21. 21. 2010 Cost<br />Manufacturing<br />Standardized Costs:<br />Tube prep = $0.75/end<br />Tube cut = $1.20/end<br />Tube weld = $1.20/end<br />Tube bend = $0.75/bend<br />
  22. 22. 2010 Cost<br />Manufacturing Costs <br />- 114 welds = $136.80<br />- 8 bends = $6.00<br />- 114 tube preps = $85.50<br />- 114 tube cuts = $136.80<br />- Total = $365.10<br />
  23. 23. 2010 Cost<br />Materials Cost = $313.09<br />Manufacturing Cost = $365.10<br />Total = $678.19<br />
  24. 24. Old VS New<br />Cost Reductions<br /><ul><li>Shorter Chassis
  25. 25. Less Manufacturing Costs
  26. 26. More bends
  27. 27. Reduces the number of tube ends to be notched and welded
  28. 28. Bending is cheaper than cutting, prepping, and welding ends</li></li></ul><li>2009 Chassis<br />Item Qty Cost <br />Tube Cuts 130 $ 156.00<br />Tube Prep 130 97.50<br />Tube Welds 130 156.00<br />Bends 4 3.00<br />Material Costs 306.90<br />Total Cost 719.40<br />2010 Chassis<br />Item Qty Cost <br />Tube Cuts 114 $ 136.80<br />Tube Prep 114 85.50<br />Tube Welds 114 136.80<br />Bends 8 6.00<br />Material Costs 313.08<br />Total Cost 678.19<br />
