  • 1. Solar Car Design Jake Porter Mark Lapalomento Wayne Hummer
  • 2. Structure of the H2
    • (place a picture of the structure of the hummer here)
  • 3. Basic idea of our design
      • Our idea was to design a car that would resemble (on a smaller scale) a hummer automobile.
      • Our design is unique and practical and that is why we feel it should be voted to go on to the next round
  • 4. Main topics we intend to discuss
    • Structure of the car
    • Running the car- solar panel
    • steering and brakes
    • budget
    • Why our design should be selected!
  • 5. Structure of the Hummer
    • Wood used for main frame
    • -inexpensive,
    • -strong
    • -can easily be cut and joined by screws or bolts
  • 6. Structure(cont.)
  • 7. Solar panel placed on top- supported by 2 x 4’s
    • (place a picture of the structure of the hummer here)
  • 8. 2 x 4’s also used along the bottom as a seat for driver
  • 9. Seat- broken chair – no cost
  • 10. 6 ft pieces- used for the bottom of the car
    • (place a picture of the structure of the hummer here)
  • 11. - ¼ inch plywood used on outside
    • (place a picture of the structure of the hummer here)
  • 12. Running the car-via Solar Panel
    • -a belt is wrapped around the motor’s axle is also wrapped around the axle betweens the wheels
    • -when the axel of the motor spins, the friction between itself and the belt will cause the axel between the wheels to spin.
    • -belt is tight around both axels in order to minimize slipping
  • 13. Driving Mechanism
  • 14. Brakes
  • 15. Steering
    • (picture of steering component)
    • - Will be purchasing a steering kit
    • -
  • 16. Budget $$$
    • 12 V motor 15.00
    • sheet of ½ inch plywood 20.00
    • 4 wheels 25.60
    • steering kit 23.60
    • axels 67.00
    • drive belt 22.00
    • 2 bearings 40.00
    • brake band 20.00
    • 2x4 beams (5) 19.90
    • 4x6 plywood 44.00
    • Total $297.10
    • Lots of budget flexibility in case other design problems arise !!!
  • 17. How to minimize forces against us
    • - The structure of our hummer allows for a very minimal air drag due to the cross sectional area (even though air resistance wont be a major factor)
      • Drag force for our vehicle-42.66 Nt
      • -Our tires are fully inflated to allow for as little rolling friction as possible-
      • F=U r N
  • 18. Sites we used
  • 19. Summary
    • The H2 Solar Powered Vehicle is top of the line in this new solar age. It will be thrust forth by a powerful 1/3 horsepower electric DC motor. Its sturdy frame will be supported by wood 2” x 4”s, with sleek ¼” plywood along the side. The solar panel will be attached overhead, sucking up the sun’s energy like a vampire sucking blood . Full with loads of bling bling luxury, rolling around on shiny 6 inch rims will never get old.
