The Aim of this project is to design a frame and a cover for a prototype Formula
Student car. Following the championship rules, all the parameters that influence on the
design will be controlled trying to get the lighter, toughness and economic car design,
but keeping an eye on the execution time. It is necessary to know when it is possible to
validate the design of a frame. Then it is very interesting to know the criteria that the
car designers use on different competitions.
Knowing the aim to achieve, choosing a suitable design tool is very important. The tool
chosen will be the Finite Elements Theory. We will use design software, Solid Works. It
is a very useful tool because let us to design and check the designs.
Currently there is no a specific rules or regulations for a tubular frame design. While for
the building construction we can find a lot of regulations, designing the frame that we
are studying there is only specific competitions that give preliminary ways of design,
just to guarantee minimums of safety. In our case we will follow the FORMULA SAE
