  5. 5. F1 in Schools™ UAE – 2012/13 Technical RegulationsF1 in Schools UAE - Presented by MubadalaThe Emirate of Abu Dhabi, capital of the United Arab Emirates, has been blessed with substantial naturalresources; resources that have brought it unprecedented prosperity. Recognizing that these reserves couldnot sustain the Emirate indefinitely, the Government of Abu Dhabi has designed a plan for creating newindustries, in order to reduce its dependence on hydrocarbons.In 2002, Mubadala - the Arabic word for ‘exchange’ - was established by the Government of Abu Dhabi, witha mission to expand the Abu Dhabi economy New, knowledge-based industries are now also valu ableemployment opportunities to the United Arab Emirates.Through sponsorship of the UAE F1 in Schools program, Mubadala introduce young people to the dynamicworld of Formula 1 and simultaneously allow them to experience its business side: helping the youth of theUAE to understand the fundamentals of business and the synergy of a strategy, commercial knowledge andteam work – traits that feature strongly in Mubadala’s own business model.The sponsorship of F1 in Schools also has other benefits, includingserving to highlight the many specialist industrie s, such asengineering and aerodynamics, on which much of the success ofFormula 1 is based. By encouraging active, hands-on participation,we can also bring to the attention of young UAE nationals thepromising career possibilities that exist in these new sectors.F1 in Schools Centre of Excellence – Yas Marina CircuitAt Abu Dhabi Motorsports Management, we define corporate social responsibility (CSR) as the way in whichwe operate to create a positive social impact within the community. Our business has a responsibility forenhancing the life of the community in which we work.We already use our facilities to support the community in many ways, notably by making the Yas MarinaCircuit available for “Training Nights Under Lights” every Tuesday. This focus is highlighted by activities suchas the annual Diabetes Walk athon, the Ministry of Labour’s mini-marathon and a range of educationalactivities including the successful F1 in Schools programme.Yas Marina Circuit is the only Grand Prix circuit in the world to have a facility dedicated to all aspects ofthe F1 in Schools Challenge. It offers a fabulous resource for students and teachers.Schools involved in the F1 in Schools Challenge are encouraged to make use of the exceptional Centre ofExcellence facilities. The Centre of Excellence features a fullyequipped computer-aided design (CAD) software studio , wind-tunnel testing facilities, two 25m race tracks, a design andtechnolo gy facility for students, a 30-person classroom settingand full audio -visual capabilities.

  8. 8. F1 in Schools™ UAE – 2012/13 Technical RegulationsF1 in Schools™ UAE Secondary Schools Technology Challenge CategoriesThere are two competition categories that teams can enter: 1. Rookie Class Competition This class can only be entered by students who have NOT previously participated in the F1 in Schools challenge for secondary schools. All team members must 14 years of age or less. This category provides for closer competition along with a simpler project for beginners, requiring less time to complete. There are special ‘design and competition parity’ regulations for this category: a. Competition Regulations – Each team’s Design Portfolio is limited to 12 pages only and should be based on the Rookie Design Portfolio template provided by F1 in Schools UAE. b. Technical Regulations: i. CNC machining – car body designs may only be manufactured using a maximum of two 3 axis machining processes. I.e. Car body machine once for each side OR one top machining process and one bottom machining process ii. Wheel and axle systems – teams must use the standard F1 in Schools (Fusion style) wheels and axle system supplied by F1 in Schools UAE iii. Rear wing – the rear wing must be manufactured and machined from the same balsa block as the car body 2. Professional Class Competition Primarily for the older students or students who have participated before. The Professional Class competition has two sub categories, Pro Junior (all team members 14 years of age or less), and Pro Senior (all team members 14-18 years of age). The rules and regulations for the Professional Class are based upon the international F1 in Schools World Finals regulations.

  9. 9. F1 in Schools™ UAE – 2012/13 Technical RegulationsThe Design BriefYou are the Formula One™ Team commissioned to design, construct and race the fastestFormula One™ Car of the Future, driven by compact compressed air power plants. Theparticular design specifications and racing regulations for this controlled racing are outlined inthis document. To succeed in the challenge you will need to work with modern designtechnologies like 3D CAD/CAM software.In order to enter the Championship, you must allocate job roles to the members of your team. Yourteam can consist of a maximum of six students. Mixed boys and girls teams are encouragedIdeally, one role should be allocated to each person; however, you may have to double up on yourroles, depending on the number of people you have available. The following job roles are examplesof what could be covered by the members of your team:  Team Manager. This person could be responsible for managing the team, ensuring that the primary and back-up cars are ready for the finals. The team manager works closely with all members of the team, offering assistance where necessary.  Resources Manager This person organises time, materials and equipment for design and making the cars. They could be responsible for developing ideas regarding team marketing (presentation). The resources manager will need to liaise with all members to check tasks are progressing on time and offer additional help, if needed.  Design Engineer This role could be responsible for the styling and aerodynamic performance of the car design using CAD software. Design engineers will need to liaise with the manufacturing engineers to ensure their ideas can be realised.  Graphic Designer This person could be responsible for producing the colour schemes applied to the vehicle, including any special sponsorship decals, together with the final graphic renderings and any additional team marketing materials. The graphic designer will need to liaise with the design engineer to ensure any schemes will fit the shape of the vehicle and the resources manager for additional marketing development.  Manufacturing Engineer These people could be responsible for advising team members on the manufacture of the car and the constraints of the machining process. Manufacturing engineers will need to liaise with the design engineers to report and help solve any problems with construction of the car.There are many tasks that must be mastered; in order to design, manufacture, prepare and finallyenter a car for racing, teamwork will be vital to your success. A real F1 team succeeds because allthe people learn to work together and support each other. Remember - no one person is more important than other members in the team.©2012 - ADMM Page 9 of 35
  10. 10. F1 in Schools™ UAE – 2012/13 Technical RegulationsDesign ConsiderationsDesign PreparationBefore beginning to design your car, youwill need:  A 3D CAD (Computer Aided Design) modelling software package at your school/college such as SolidWorks  A design template for the F1 in Schools™ balsa wood blank, which the body is made from.  Hopefully, an endless supply of ideas!Software TrainingCAD packages will help you model and develop your ideas in 3D. Of course, as with most CADpackages, it takes time to learn how to use them. Your technology teacher should be able to showyou how the software works, but members of your team will need to spend some time exploring thesoftware, so you can see what it can do and how it can help you design your Bloodhound car. Check the resources CD your teacher received in the UAE F1 in Schools starter pack for SolidWorks F1 in Schools design tutorialsResearchInvestigate existing real F1™ car designcharacteristics and also previous F1 inSchools car design ideas. Concentrateyour research on areas that could helpyour team, for example, aerodynamics andcar body designs, and then try to apply thesame principles to your own project.TestingYour team may want to consider testing avariety of car designs, or car parts, in awind and/or smoke tunnel to evaluatetheir aerodynamic performance. VirtualReality Wind Tunnel software is availableto purchase or you could visit the YasMarina Circuit Centre of Excellence to usedesktop size wind and smoke tunnels©2012 - ADMM Page 10 of 35
  11. 11. F1 in Schools™ UAE – 2012/13 Technical RegulationsManufacturing ConsiderationsWith your F1 in Schools Secondary ClassCar Kit you will receive a balsa wood blank, aset of 4 wheels, 2 axles, axle guide andsome washers for wheel spacing. Theseare the basics for car manufacture andassembly.All F1 in Schools™ Bloodhound SSC carbodies must be manufactured using CAM(Computer Aided Manufacture) softwareand a CNC (Computer Numeric Control)machine.Your body design must be at least 10mmshorter at the front end, compared to theactual balsa wood block (we have accountedfor this is in the Rules & Regulations). Youwill not be able to machine to the extremeend of the balsa wood block, as it is used forattaching it in the CNC machine.Once machined, you can smooth down thebalsa wood design with sand paper, andfinish with primer and paint. Note that only a limited amount of hand finishing to the body is allowed.You could also decorate the car body with any sponsorship stickers, advertising or colour schemes.Schools can have their car designs manufactured at the Yas Centre of Excellence on ourDENFORD CNC 3D routers either by visiting the centre or simply emailing us your car design; wethen send the completed models back to you. Be sure to check the season timeline formanufacturing request deadlines. F1 in Schools Technology Challenge Centre of Excellence - Workshop©2012 - ADMM Page 11 of 35

  16. 16. F1 in Schools™ UAE – 2012/13 Technical RegulationsARTICLE T1 – DEFINITIONST1.1 F1 in Schools car This is also referred to as ‘the car’. Designed and manufactured according to these regulations for the purpose of participating in races on the F1 in Schools™ track at the UAE National Finals event. Powered only by a single gas cylinder containing 8 grams of pressurised CO2, F1 in Schools cars are designed to travel the 20 metre race distance as quickly as possible, whilst withstanding the forces of launch acceleration, track traversing and physical deceleration after crossing the finishing line. An F1 in Schools car assembly must only consist of the following components:  A body (which includes virtual cargo)  A CO2 cylinder chamber  A front wing  A rear wing  Wing support structures  A nose cone  Wheels  Wheel support systems  A tether line slot  Tether line guides  Paint finish and decals Adhesives with no dimensional impact are permissible for joining components. Body (including virtual cargo) Wheels Nose cone Rear wing Wing support structures CO2 cylinder chamber Tether line slot Tether line guides Paint finish and decals Wheel support systems Front wingT1.2 Fully assembled car An F1 in Schools car, without a CO2 cylinder inserted, presented ready for racing, resting on the track surface, free of any external force other than gravity.T1.3 Body The body consists only of balsa wood and is manufactured using one or more CNC machining processes. The body encompasses a virtual cargo and bounds the CO2 cylinder chamber and all or part of the tether line slot. Any balsa wood material continuing forward©2012 - ADMM Page 16 of 35
  17. 17. F1 in Schools™ UAE – 2012/13 Technical Regulations of the front axle centre line is not defined as car body. For dimensional purposes the body also includes any attached decals and surface finishes.T1.4 CO2 cylinder chamber A circular cylinder of clear space bounded along its side and one end by car body only. This is where the CO2 gas cylinder is placed for racing.T1.5 Wing A wing on an F1 in Schools car is an aerodynamic feature that permits airflow around ALL of its surfaces including its features of a leading and trailing edge. A wing is dimensionally defined by the maximum and minimum span, chord and thickness. The vertical cross- sectional shape of the wing, parallel to the direction of car travel, is referred to as an aerofoil. The following diagram assists with describing relevant aerofoil features. Wing cross-section / aerofoil nomenclatureT1.6 Wing support structure Is a non-metallic feature, other than wing, car body or nose cone that is joined to a wing surface and may join the wing to any other part of the car assembly. Rear Wing Support Structures Front Wing Support StructureT1.7 Nose cone The nose cone is any non-metallic part of the car, other than wheel, wheel support system, wing or wing support structure, that exists forward of the front axle centre line. This includes any balsa wood material that continues forward from the body.T1.8 Wheel A wheel is a single part or assembly of components, cylindrical in form, with its maximum circumference contacting the track surface, facilitating motion of the car through rotation. All material existing within the volume of the extreme diameter and width is considered to be part of the wheel.©2012 - ADMM Page 17 of 35
  18. 18. F1 in Schools™ UAE – 2012/13 Technical RegulationsT1.9 Wheel support system Wheel support systems are single parts or an assembly of components that connect a wheel to any other part of the car. These may consist of a combination of manufactured or commercial parts. I.e. Bearings, bushes and axles could be used.T1.10 Tether line slot The tether line slot is a rectangular prism of clear space that is bounded by solid material on three sides of its length.T1.11 Tether line guide A tether line guide is a key safety component which completely surrounds the track tether line so as to safely connect the car to the tether line during races. A tether line guide can be a component sourced from a supplier or manufactured wholly or in part by the team.T1.12 Paint finish and decals A paint finish on an F1 in Schools car is considered to be any visible surface covering on any component of the car. A decal is thin material adhered to a component or paint finish surface. To be defined as a decal, 100% of the adhering side must be attached to a surface.T1.13 Hand finishing Hand finishing is defined as use of a hand powered device (e.g. abrasive paper) for removing only the irregularities that may remain on a CNC machined surface of the car body. These irregularities are often referred to as ‘scalloping marks’.T1.14 Vertical reference plane To assist with describing dimensions, it is assumed that an invisible plane exists two dimensional along the length of the CO2 cylinder chamber centre axis and perpendicular to the track surface. This is known as the vertical reference plane. Vertical reference planeT1.15 Official balsa wood blank The official balsa wood blank is a homogenous piece of forested balsa wood, processed to the dimensional features as shown by diagrams in the appendix of this document.©2012 - ADMM Page 18 of 35
