Hummer Solar Car Design

  1. 1. Solar Car Design Jake Porter Mark Lapalomento Wayne Hummer http://www.hummer.com/
  2. 2. Structure of the H2 <ul><li>(place a picture of the structure of the hummer here) </li></ul>
  3. 3. Basic idea of our design <ul><ul><li>Our idea was to design a car that would resemble (on a smaller scale) a hummer automobile. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Our design is unique and practical and that is why we feel it should be voted to go on to the next round </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. Main topics we intend to discuss <ul><li>Structure of the car </li></ul><ul><li>Running the car- solar panel </li></ul><ul><li>steering and brakes </li></ul><ul><li>budget </li></ul><ul><li>Why our design should be selected! </li></ul>
  5. 5. Structure of the Hummer <ul><li>Wood used for main frame </li></ul><ul><li>-inexpensive, </li></ul><ul><li>-strong </li></ul><ul><li>-can easily be cut and joined by screws or bolts </li></ul>
  6. 6. Structure(cont.)
  7. 7. Solar panel placed on top- supported by 2 x 4’s <ul><li>(place a picture of the structure of the hummer here) </li></ul>
  8. 8. 2 x 4’s also used along the bottom as a seat for driver
  9. 9. Seat- broken chair – no cost
  10. 10. 6 ft pieces- used for the bottom of the car <ul><li>(place a picture of the structure of the hummer here) </li></ul>
  11. 11. - ¼ inch plywood used on outside <ul><li>(place a picture of the structure of the hummer here) </li></ul>
  12. 12. Running the car-via Solar Panel <ul><li>-a belt is wrapped around the motor’s axle is also wrapped around the axle betweens the wheels </li></ul><ul><li>-when the axel of the motor spins, the friction between itself and the belt will cause the axel between the wheels to spin. </li></ul><ul><li>-belt is tight around both axels in order to minimize slipping </li></ul>
  13. 13. Driving Mechanism
  14. 14. Brakes <ul><li>http://www.gokartsupply.com/brakes.htm </li></ul>
  15. 15. Steering <ul><li>(picture of steering component) </li></ul><ul><li>- Will be purchasing a steering kit </li></ul><ul><li>- </li></ul>
  16. 16. Budget $$$ <ul><li>12 V motor 15.00 </li></ul><ul><li>sheet of ½ inch plywood 20.00 </li></ul><ul><li>4 wheels 25.60 </li></ul><ul><li>steering kit 23.60 </li></ul><ul><li>axels 67.00 </li></ul><ul><li>drive belt 22.00 </li></ul><ul><li>2 bearings 40.00 </li></ul><ul><li>brake band 20.00 </li></ul><ul><li>2x4 beams (5) 19.90 </li></ul><ul><li>4x6 plywood 44.00 </li></ul><ul><li>Total $297.10 </li></ul><ul><li>Lots of budget flexibility in case other design problems arise !!! </li></ul>
  17. 17. How to minimize forces against us <ul><li>- The structure of our hummer allows for a very minimal air drag due to the cross sectional area (even though air resistance wont be a major factor) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Drag force for our vehicle-42.66 Nt </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>-Our tires are fully inflated to allow for as little rolling friction as possible- </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>F=U r N </li></ul></ul>
  18. 18. Sites we used <ul><li>http://auto.howstuffworks.com/steering.htm </li></ul><ul><li>http://www.formulasun.org/education/seles9.html </li></ul><ul><li>http://www.madsci.org/posts/archives/aug97/869082655.Eg.r.html </li></ul>
  19. 19. Summary <ul><li>The H2 Solar Powered Vehicle is top of the line in this new solar age. It will be thrust forth by a powerful 1/3 horsepower electric DC motor. Its sturdy frame will be supported by wood 2” x 4”s, with sleek ¼” plywood along the side. The solar panel will be attached overhead, sucking up the sun’s energy like a vampire sucking blood . Full with loads of bling bling luxury, rolling around on shiny 6 inch rims will never get old. </li></ul>
  20. 21. <ul><li>The H2 Solar powered vehicle….. </li></ul><ul><li>LIKE NOTHING EL$E </li></ul>
