Formula SAE Lincoln


2014 SAE Presidents Message
Welcome to the third year of the Formula SAE and Formula SAE Electric
competitions in Lincoln, Nebraska. Formula SAE is steeped in tradition and
competition. Now in its 32nd year, Formula SAE provides the real-world
challenges of systems engineering, design and problem solving, along with
the teaming challenges of collaboration and cooperation.
The Formula Electric competition, in its second year, offers a unique set of
skills and learning opportunities related to the burgeoning electric powertrain
technologies.
In short, Formula SAE competitions, along with all of the SAE Collegiate
Design Series competitions, provide the skills and experiences needed for a
well-rounded engineering education.
In addition to learning, Formula SAE also provides a unique form of
competition. This week, collegiate engineering students from many different
nations will compete in a series of static and dynamic events designed
to challenge their engineering, problem-solving and teamwork skills. The
students will work hard and compete to win. Some will win first place, others
will not. But all will leave here winners because they will be better engineering
students.
Good luck to all who are competing in this event. Also, I want to thank
everyone for their hard work, support, volunteerism and participation. The
experiences and learning you gain this weekend will last throughout your lives.
Sincerely,

Daniel M. Hancock
President, SAE International

Concept of the Competition


The Formula SAE Series competitions challenge teams of university undergraduate and
graduate students to conceive, design, fabricate and compete with small, formula style,
competition vehicle. To give teams the maximum design flexibility and the freedom to express
their creativity and imaginations there are very few restrictions on the overall vehicle design.
Teams typically spend eight to twelve months designing, building, testing and preparing
their vehicles before a competition. The competitions themselves give teams the chance
to demonstrate and prove both their creation and their engineering skills in comparison to
teams from other universities around the world. Registered for this event are 80 Internal
Combustion Teams and 20 Electric Teams from colleges and universities. The end result is
a great experience for young engineers in a meaningful engineering project as well as the
opportunity of working in a dedicated team effort.
For the purpose of this competition, the students are to assume that a manufacturing firm has
engaged them to produce a prototype car for evaluation as a production item. The intended
sales market is the nonprofessional weekend competitor. Therefore, the car must have very
high performance in terms of its acceleration, braking, and handling qualities. The car must
be low in cost, easy to maintain, and reliable. In addition, the cars marketability is enhanced
by other factors such as aesthetics, comfort and use of common parts. The manufacturing
firm is planning to produce four (4) cars per day for a limited production run. The challenge
to the design team is to design and fabricate a prototype car that best meets these goals and
intents. Each design will be compared and judged with other competing designs to determine
the best overall car.
Over the course of three days, the cars are judged in a series of static and dynamic events
including: technical inspection, cost, presentation, and engineering design, solo performance
trials, and high performance track endurance. These events are scored to determine how well
the car performs. In each event, the manufacturing firm has specified minimum acceptable
performance levels that are reflected in the scoring equations.

Static Events:
Design Report: The students explain their constructive solutions to a jury of experts from
the automotive and motorsport industries in report and discussion. The concept of the
design is to evaluate the engineering effort that went into the design of the car and how
the engineering meets the intent of the market. The car that illustrates the best use of
engineering to meet the design goals and the best understanding of the design by the team
members will win the design event.
Cost Report: The students are to assume that a serial production of 1000 cars a year will
follow the prototype. The cost calculation is discussed with a jury based on a report. The
objective of the event is for the participants to learn and understand the manufacturing
techniques and processes of some of the components that they have chosen to purchase
rather than fabricate themselves.
Presentation: The objective is to evaluate the teams ability to develop and deliver a
comprehensive business case that will convince the executives of a fake manufacturing firm
that the teams design best meets the demands of the amateur weekend competition market
and that it can be profitably manufactured and marketed.

Dynamic Events:
Acceleration: The cars are evaluated on their accelerating
abilities from a standing start over a distance of 75 meters.
Autocross: The objective is to evaluate the cars
maneuverability and handling qualities on a tight course
without the hindrance of competing cars. The course will
combine the performance features of acceleration, braking
and cornering into one event. The results of the Autocross
scores determine the starting order for endurance.
Skid-Pad: The objective is to measure the cars cornering
ability on a flat surface while making a constant-radius turn.
The course will be a pair of concentric circles in shape of the
number 8; the cars demonstrate how good lateral forces can
be absorbed (up to 1.4g).
Endurance: Over a distance of 22 km the cars have to prove
their durability under long-term conditions. Acceleration,
speed, handling, dynamics, fuel efficiency, reliability the
cars have to prove it all.

UWashington Formula Motorsports

University of Washington

Auburn University
War Eagle Motorsports

The UWashington Formula Motorsports team is proud to present a brand new


car for the 2014 competition season. The team utilized the successful design
aspects of previous cars, while also implementing many significant changes for
this season. The car runs a new single cylinder motor for improved performance,
has a unidirectional carbon fiber monocoque chassis, integrated CV/hubs, a full
aerodynamics package with a dynamic drag reduction system, a two-way telemetry system for real-time data acquisition, a tightly packaged drivetrain system
that focuses on ease of manufacture and assembly, carbon fiber wheel shells,
and a new suspension system that utilizes ten inch tires and has been designed
to maximize adjustability. Improving the analysis, manufacturing, and physical
validation of all parts is a focus for this year. With one of the earliest assembly
completions in recent team history, ample time has been spent testing and tuning
the car for ultimate speed, reliability, and overall success. After Lincoln, the team
will compete outside the United States at Formula Student Germany.

AU-2014 utilizes a hybrid front monocoque and rear space frame chassis design
to yield optimal vehicle dynamics, packaging, and overall reliability. The robust,
efficient and powerful Yamaha R6 is used to power AU-2014. The decision to
retain the R6 powerplant was made due to the reliability, driver-friendly torque,
and efficiency that the team has extracted from the motor in AU-2014s predecessors. The R6 motor combined with an all-new monocque design and 10 in.
wheels yields a superior power to weight ratio, and gives AU-2014 an advantage
over the competition at the track and in the market-place.

USF Racing

F2014 represents the ninth Formula SAE vehicle produced by USF Racing since
beginning the FSAE series in 2005, and is the fourth evolution of our current
design concept. The following goals were created by the team preceding the
design process: improvement of component serviceability, initial development of
an aerodynamics package, and a 10 lb weight reduction (without wings) from our
previous model, F2013. We placed an emphasis on validating design simulation
through real-world testing. Based off of the successes of previous models, F2014
runs a naturally aspirated Suzuki LT-R 450cc single cylinder engine, steel axles,
and 10 inch wheels. Integrating last years chassis packaging with improvements
in the suspension and engine systems, the introduction of an aerodynamics package as well as building on a successful history in static events, we hope to have
created a car which continues to perform aggressively across all events in the
FSAE competition.

CR-19 is Iowa State Universitys 19th car to compete in the Formula SAE
series. For CR-19, emphasis was placed on reducing the number and complexity
of components to decrease manufacturing time and improve reliability. We also
emphasized the use of sheet metal parts that can be water jet or laser cut. This
years car continues on 10 wheels and features unique a-arms that are machined from aluminum plates. The powertrain remains largely the same as last
year as we continue to use the Yamaha YFZ450R engine. Our intake/restrictor is
now 3D printed in Stratayss proprietary high strength material, ULTEM 9085.The
pedals are mounted on a tray that has 5 of adjustability to accommodate a range
of driver heights. The use of aircraft fabric bodywork eliminated the need for
composites molds and saved time, money and weight.

Titan Motorsports is going on its second year of a carbon fiber monocoque and
its first year with stressed engine block and rear carbon fiber subframe box. The
Titan teams suspension optimization called for longer rear suspension arms so a
three piece carbon fiber frame will be used. The block will be stressed between a
carbon fiber engine mount and rear subframe box. The stressed engine block is
an OEM Yamaha R6S engine and transmission that drives a Torsen T-1 differential. Titan Motorsports plans to drop a significant amount of weight with many
parts pounds lighter than last year. This drop in weight can be accredited to better
design along with more FEA. Nearly every part on the car was designed and built
in house. The team of half seniors and half underclassman is excited to show the
progression of Titan Motorsports.

Triton Racing

Triton Racing is focusing on building a car to be a solid platform for future teambuilding. Our goal is to have one extra week of testing for every year we compete,
so TR X+1 is always better than TR X. We are hybridizing some old and new
designs, such as the 4 cylinder from our most successful 2006 entry and the 10
inch wheels from our most innovative 2011 entry.
The suspension has been designed to lower the center of mass as much as
possible without sacrificing ground clearance or camber compliance. Special care
was taken to ensure a small turning radius and easily adjustable camber.
The TR-14 chassis is designed to minimize extraneous members, which
decreases weight without sacrificing stiffness. Of special focus was usage of
thin-walled gusseting to reinforce critical suspension and mounting tabs without
using thicker tabs.
Our Powertrain is designed to use as many stock parts and as much of the stock
tune as possible to ensure the utmost in reliability. Parts were adapted from the
Yamaha FZ6R to provide simple mounting solutions and ensure that the design
considerations of the OEM were accounted for and worked around.

MTSU Motorsports

For the 2014 Formula SAE competition, Middle Tennessee State University is
making a comeback into FSAE. The primary goal this year was to build a reliable
car that will be the platform for future teams to learn from for years to come.
MTSU has built a car that offers a robust yet lightweight space frame constructed
of 4130 Chromoly tubing. The 2005 Yamaha YFZ 450 engine being used this
year has been converted from a carbureted system over to a custom fuel injection
system utilizing an AEM EMS 4 engine management system that reads off of a
custom fabricated 12 minus 1 reluctance sensor wheel that has been machine
press fitted onto the flywheel.
Drivability is optimized by using a Rekluse tunable slipper clutch in order to
facilitate no-lift shifts as well as simplify driver controls. An AiM MXL Sports Dash
keeps the driver informed of relevant data and allows the driver to make limited
changes to the engine management system on the fly.
Wilwood Dynalite aluminum calipers with custom cross-drilled rotors allow for
excellent stopping power and Ohlins Double Barrel Dampers help get the car
through the corners.
All of these systems allow for a vehicle that has performance, innovation, reliability, and drivability.

SPSU Motorsports

Southern Poly Motorsports focuses on delivering a simple, reliable, driver friendly


racecar, and to focus on performance by lowering the center of gravity, yaw
moment, and weight. This is achieved by low part count, careful packaging, and
multifunction parts. Some defining examples are the use of a 3lbs spool type
differential, direct mounted coil over dampers, 2 piece fully mechanical shifter,
and a 2 piece spindless tulip in hub and upright rear wheel assembly. Our power
plant, a K3 Suzuki GSXR-600, provides extremely reliable power. The car features
a 3D printed intake with slide style throttle body to provide a very lightweight, fast
manufacture solution with very high throttle response. This combined with a 4-1
single exhaust and a short final drive ratio produce useable power at any speed.
Most of all, a huge thanks to everyone on the team this year, somehow surviving
an extremely tight budget, a sudden school merger, wavering support, personal
hardships, and mountains of politics and red tape, and still dedicated to learning,
designing, and building an awesome racecar. Also a big thanks to all of our sponsors, friends, and families, we wouldnt have made it without you.

Huskie Motorsports

Huskie Motorsports proudly present their 2014 car, SX, named so as it is the 10th
(X) vehicle built by the U of S.he chief focus of the design and construction of
SX was to create a vehicle of consistent and reliable performance. To accomplish
this, three ideologies were held to during all stages of work on SX.
Testing: To ensure complete confidence in new designs, bench-testing of components and documenting test results was made a higher priority. As well, the build
schedule of SX was made more aggressive. This allows completion the car sooner
and gives road testing time far in excess of the 2 weeks of years past.
Reusing: To ensure complete reliability with the relatively small team size and
financial resources of Huskie Motorsports, it was decided to reuse a large number
of components from the 2013 car, S9. Changes were implemented to remedy
problems identified on S9, and functioning designs were retained.
Driveability: The dynamic events of FSAE are a performance demonstration not
unlike a time trial race, and racing has a human element that can affect results as
much as the car. Therefore the design and tuning for SX held ease of consistent
operation as a strong focus.

UCLA Formula SAE

UCLAs Formula SAE entrant in 2014 combines a number of key design tenets
into a cohesive performance package. As a first year team at this competition,
we strived to make our car in the most cost effective manner while not sacrificing
the reliability or performance of it. As such, the cars chassis is constructed from
a standard steel tube space frame and is motivated by a Honda CRF450X single
cylinder engine to balance both weight and power. In addition, the suspension
has been designed to be fully adjustable so that the cars characteristics can
be modified during testing and compensate for understeer caused by our spool.
Every component added to the car not only met specific performance requirements, but was also designed with ease of manufacturing in mind. We leveraged
campus resources such as the waterjet table, CNC mill, and composite material
labs to build a high quality final product. Altogether, the car represents a crowning
moment not only for our program, but for UCLA as a whole. Considering this is the
first time any team from UCLA has ever participated in a Formula SAE event, we
are extremely proud to present the culmination of two years worth of hard work.

UC Berkeley Formula SAE

This years design focused on keeping the simple and lightweight concept used
last year while increasing the cars reliability and dynamic capabilities. B14s
suspension consists of a two direct-actuated shocks in the front and a single
pushrod-actuated transverse monoshock with anti-roll bar in the rear. Hoosier
LC0 10 tires were found to improve skid pad times by at least 0.75 s over the
tires used on last years entry. B14s powertrain is designed around the SA250,
a 250cc, single cylinder four stroke kart engine. This engine was identified
through lap simulation and ultimately chosen for low weight (35 lbs wet) and high
stock output. Torque comes on to a peak of 19 ft-lbs and remains within 10% of
peak from 7000-12500 RPM. Peak power is 44 HP at 12500 RPM. The small
displacement of 250cc allows for stock peak power and torque to be maintained
even after the addition of the restrictor. The use of custom carbon axles, metal flex
disk CV joints, and a spool differential saved approximately 20 lbs over comparable off-the-shelf solutions.

Matador Motorsports

The 2014 CSUN car features a well-integrated lightweight chassis, highly optimized suspension geometry, and a single unit turbo-engine-drivetrain package
capable of delivering 58 lb-ft of torque to the wheels.
An enormous effort was taken to lighten our vehicles unsprung mass, while
ensuring that compliance was minimal throughout the harsh loading conditions.
Our light-weight 10 carbon-fiber wheels allow us a higher natural unsprung
frequency and a significant weight reduction in rotating-and-translating mass.
Coupled with our analysis of tire data, the result is a car that can tackle any of the
challenges that lay ahead at the track.
We acknowledge the importance of downforce, but believe that heavy and expensive aero-packages do not fall within the needs of a weekend autocross racer.
This philosophy has pushed us to develop a vehicle that can compete with the
aero-giants in both Dynamic and Static events.
We work hard and seek to be competitive with the top teams. Above all, we look
forward to a weekend of racing and engineering. Formula SAE prepares us for the
real world, and we are eager to meet the new generation of engineers who will be
working with us in the future!

Mines FSAE

Now in our second year, the Colorado School of Mines has revamped their whole
design process. After learning a tremendous amount of car design last year, this
years team has changed focus to designing a more reliable car with modularity
and reduced weight. This years car brings a unique upright design along with an
aluminum box to house the rear drivetrain. The team also incorporated a pushrod
suspension system with an anti-roll bar. This car is the first iteration of its design
for the Colorado School of Mines. With increased funding from last year and
access to a CNC machine, the production quality has risen substantially for the
car. The car is supplemented by a front and rear wing, triple element, aerodynamic package. Through CFD optimization the wings produce 140 lbf at 30 mph.
The wings and body are constructed with carbon fiber for reduced weight. The
2014 team expects to improve greatly from last year.

Wild Hare RAcing

Wild Hare Racing presents its seventh consectuive car to compete in FSAE,
WHR14. This years car is the largest step forward for the team in several years.
The team focused on improving areas where the driver interacts with the car and
many notable changes were made. For example, WHR14 features an entirely
new space-frame chassis designed around greater driver comfort and integration with the other systems on the car. The cockpit is home to a custom steering
wheel with integrated electronics as well as mechanical paddle shifters. Also
new to WHR is outboard brakes in the rear for better balance and control. Other
significant changes include the greatly increased downforce coming from our
second year aerodynamic package which sports the addition of an undertray. A
redesigned 3D printed intake manifold will give WHR14 better drivability on track
through a flatter torque curve.

Advanced ergonomics remove driver errors by fully automating the cars shifting
and clutch mechanisms. A smooth power band and well balanced suspension
aids in the ease of control.
Data acquisition has allowed the team to fine tune each detail, measuring
everything from brake pressures and temperatures, engine oil/coolant conditions,
accelerations, to individual wheel speeds and more.
Lightweight infusion moulded carbon fibre aerodynamic components have spent
countless hours in CFD, and prototyped in the wind-tunnel to rule out gimmick
aerodynamic features and optimize negative lift, all while keeping the centre of
pressure directly behind the centre of gravity for all expected speeds.

Oregon Tech Racing raises the bar again with its most advanced vehicle concept
to date. Fully floating aero with active flaps, sophisticated student developed electronics, an increased focus on total reliability, and several very innovative, secret
technologies distinguish our 2014 car from previous years. Retaining proven design concepts like our ultralight steel spaceframe chassis and mechanical paddle
shifters allows our team to focus on other aspects of the car that need development. This has resulted in a dry sump oiling system, complete cooling system
redesign, new student designed carbon steering rack, carbon wheel development
work, brake system redesign, and increased focus on driver ergonomics. Did I
mention big wings?

The Husker Mark III was designed to fill a market gap between shifter carts
and Formula Ford. It was designed to be a mid-range vehicle that would allow
the weekend autocross runner to run a slightly more technologically advanced
car than a shifter cart, while at the same time being less costly and difficult to
work on as a Formula Ford. This turn key racing solution is much less complex
compared to other FSAE Vehicles that employ aerodynamic systems, high-end
manufacturing, and complex electronic systems.

We like to keep it simple and put our time where it counts. This year we have
adopted a single goal for our team to earn 675+ Points. The 2014 car goal was
chosen to achieve the team goals; reliability, simplicity, performance, and (team)
understanding.

The Husker Mark III is an improvement over its predecessor in almost all aspects.
Coming off the line at 420 lbs, the Husker Mark III has a 15% increase in brake
horsepower, resulting in 90 bhp. Likewise the torque has increased to 60 ft-lb.
The Husker Mark III will also employ more uniform, easier to design parts. The
car will be built using common fasteners, simplistic pedal designs, and the use of
widely available components for the shifter, springs, and differential. All of these
improvements lead to the conclusion that this vehicle will be easy to maintain and
operate.

The team made major strides in understanding the vehicle suspension kinematics.
The team created a lap time simulator for the skidpad, acceleration, and our
standardized testing asymmetric oval map.

University of Hawaii at Manoa has not had a Formula Program in many years so
this year we hope to build a lasting Hawaii Formula Program. The designs for the
2014 car will focus on ease of manufacturing, and component longevity. We set
an initial vehicle test date at five months in to the program which limited overall
design time. The purpose of such a short design time was to focus on vehicle
testing and driver training. Coming from Hawaii we have limited access to vehicle
test space. Fortunately our test time coincides with the final three autox races
of the season. Testing at autox is our main goal to simulate and practice for the
Lincoln competition. The 2014 car focuses on setting initial benchmarks in overall
design and performance, then improving each year and building a lasting program
at our school.

The 2014 UW Formula Motorsports FSAE car features significant changes to most
of its systems. The suspension architecture has been moved to a 10 wheel package to save ~20lbs, and now integrates a 3rd spring on both the front and rear of
the car. The aero package was reworked to save weight and increase downforce
using hollow wing construction and leveraging CFD and wind tunnel testing. The
CBR600RR has been refined, and now makes use of a wet sump swivel pickup
to improve engine reliability, as well as significant dyno time to improve efficiency
and driveability. Composite shear panels were used in the floor of the chassis,
paving their way to further structural composites implementation in the future.

The 2014 Formula SAE Competition in Lincoln, NE will be the first event that the
Chico State Formula SAE Team will be competing in. As a first year car team, the
philosophy behind the design was to keep it simple. The focus was to build a car
that could take part in all of the dynamic events and at the same time, establish a
good base for the team. The vehicle utilizes a 2007 GSX-R600 engine driven by a
spool. Simplicity and ease of manufacturing was kept in mind when designing the
suspension and driveline components. This allowed for a car that is straightforward to fabricate and assemble.

The Chico State Formula SAE Team hopes to make their first year not only a successful one, but a memorable one as well.

Spartan Racing is proud to introduce SR-6, our sixth Formula SAE vehicle and
the boldest yet. Weve returned to compete this year with more motivation, more
speed, and a lot more carbon (with slightly less yellow). SR-6 incorporates the
strong points of the lightening-fast SR-5, including electropneumatic paddle shifters, a powerful and reliable Honda F4i engine, and a dry sump system. To improve
reliability, handling, and speed, weve added a Drexler differential, redesigned the
chassis to significantly boost stiffness and enclose suspension components for
drag reduction, and designed a three-element wing package for a high lift/drag
ratio. SR-6 sets a new bar for us at Spartan Racing, and we are excited to share it
with all of our friends here at FSAE Lincoln 2014.

PBR14 is a large step for the University of Manitoba Polar Bear Racing team
incorporating many new areas of design. A full aerodynamics package, 4-1
exhaust header with the new CBR600RR, 10 inch diameter Hoosier tires, and a
new salisbury style differential are only the beginning of the big design list the
team has taken on for 2014. Immediately following the 2013 Lincoln competition,
the PBR team began the 5 month design process of the new PBR14 vehicle. The
new aerodynamic and suspension components ate up design time but the team
has buckled down to produce the teams 5th CFRP monocoque for the PBR14 car
featuring more engine access and cooling.

Mizzou Racing

Mizzou Racing is proud to introduce our 2014 entry into Formula SAE. Building on almost 30 years of Mizzou Formula SAE history, we have designed a car
that champions reliability and drivability, while also embracing creativity and
innovation, testing our engineering limits. Starting with the bullet-proof Honda
CBR 600RR, we have produced a formidable power train that reliably produces
a supply of relentless but controllable power. We also focused heavily on putting
that power to use. The use of Hoosier tires demands that our suspension be
highly optimized to squeeze out every last bit of performance, so a premium was
placed on maintaining optimum camber angles, and reducing tire load fluctuation.
To maximize lateral acceleration, our already impressive aerodynamics package
was overhauled, and now produces an incredible amount of downforce, even at
low speeds. To help reduce drag, and manage the massive aerodynamic loads, an
active-aerodynamics system was developed to allow for a tunable aero-balance
at any speed, with the ability to react dynamically to various different driving
maneuvers, keeping us as close to the limit as possible at all times.

Sooner Racing Team

The Sooner Racing Teams 2014 entry, known affectionately as Lily, is the next
iteration of a aerodynamically augmented, lightweight vehicle. All vehicle systems
targeted component mass and inertial characteristics while identifying component
durability limits and maintaining ease of service. A simulation-based approach
was used along with multiple forms of physical validation, including but not limited
to integrated data acquisition, to select critical vehicle performance parameters in
order to develop the selected vehicle concept.

Knights Racing

For 2014, Knights Racing competes with the most well rounded vehicle to come
from UCF. The KR14 blends advanced technologies with successful and proven
designs, with an overall focus on reliability. Beginning with the most noticeable,
KR14 is the first car from the Knights stable to feature aerodynamics in the form
of front and rear wings. Composites are widely implemented, notably in the intake,
seat, wings, and bodywork. The KR14 continues to be powered by the GSX-R600
engine through Haltech electronics, breathing through a new top-fed intake
and 4-1 exhaust that increases drivability and efficiency. A tubular 4130 space
frame chassis and lightweight steel suspension arms create a stiff, well balanced
vehicle. Packaging and serviceability were key design goals in the integration of
systems with the chassis along with ergonomics and driver comfort. An adjustable
pedal box with incremental points of adjustment comfortably suits drivers of many
proportions, while the seat is designed to reduce pressure points and support the
driver without being constricting. Other systems were designed with the overall
goals of reliability, low mass, and ergonomics in mind.

The Oakland University FSAE team saw tremendous success during the 2013
competition year ending the season with the best competition finish in the teams
16 year history, ranking 2nd in the state, 9th in the country and 36th in the world.
An Endurance Event victory would mark success for 2014 season; by definition,
a car successful in the Endurance Event is one that does not suffer in any other
area of competition. The following design criteria were focused on: reliability,
adjustability, and drivability. Dedication and improvement is highlighted through
simulation and analytical methods used in the design of components. The ability
to make quick adjustments to counteract dynamic circumstances during a race
event was critical. The final component of Oakland Universitys design philosophy
was developed through hours of testing and racing; making GRX4 more drivable
would also be necessary for the teams Endurance Event victory. Previously,
drivability has been overlooked due to difficulty in quantifying changes and their
effect. Several key aspects were determined to have an impact on drivability:
engine output, driver control response, and ergonomics.

Clemson University Formula SAE

Shortly after the 2013 competition, we sat down to discuss what went right and
what went wrong. A long list of ideas was formed then trimmed and reworked
until our design philosophy for the 2014 car emerged. The three driving goals
were to continue our weight reduction with a target of removing 50lbs from the
previous car, finish the car by April 1 in order to test and validate designs, and design for serviceability so that anything that went wrong could be fixed. An evaluation of previous results showed that the team had a consistently solid showing
in dynamic events which could be improved upon through simple elements.
Fundamental to these elements was gaining a better understanding of what the
car is doing and what actually matters in the design. To that end, we focused on
maintaining designs that had proven themselves in previous years, fixing nagging
issues with the design and production, and creating better simulations to study
the effects of changes in the car.
Our 2013 entry weighed 516lbs, down 10lbs from the 2012 car. Our goal for this
year is to move the car down to the 460lb range to make it more competitive in
acceleration and fuel economy.

Purdue University - W Lafayette


Purdue Formula SAE

The 2014 team from Purdue University, West Lafayette put a large emphasis on
sound engineering design and efficient manufacturing. Significant changes were
made to the frame design to increase torsional rigidity while minimizing weight.
Changes to the kinematics were made based on the switch to Hoosier tires and
the associated findings from in-depth tire modeling. The Honda CBR600F4i
engine was fitted with a dry sump oil system to improve oil supply, minimizing
engine damage due to oil starvation. Improvements to the electronics system
were also made, with an electro-mechanical shifter being implemented to allow
shifting via paddles on the steering wheel. A full aerodynamic package consisting
of a front wing, diffuser, rear wing, and sculpted bodywork was implemented to
improve vehicle performance.
The success of the Purdue FSAE team is not only due to the hard work and dedication of its members but also of the entire community that supports the team. A
huge thank you goes out to Purdue University, our sponsors, our alumni, and the
FSAE volunteers that make the events a success. A special thanks to our family
and friends for their understanding, patience, and support this year.

UIC Motorsports

UIC Motorsports set out to design and manufacture a reliable four cylinder space
frame car that weighs less than 205kg. The design of the 2014 formula car (F14)
was achieved by focusing on the areas of the F13 that possessed the greatest potential for improvement in safety, reliability, and manufacturability while
reducing weight, complexity, and cost. Every component of the F14 was modeled
in SolidWorks allowing designers to notice any packaging issues and fix them
prior to manufacturing. Assigning part numbers and maintaining an up to date
bill of materials enabled the team to track the weight and complexity of designs
based on component count. This significantly reduced the amount of time spent
manufacturing and allowed for the team to focus more energy on testing and
validation of designs.

Universidade Estadual de Campinas

University of Calif - Davis


UC Davis Formula Racing

UC Davis Formula Racings first electric formula car is designed as a capable


and flexible platform for powertrain innovation through enabling research and
implementation of an advanced torque vectoring and predictive traction control
system. A National Instruments RIO device is used to implement the control and
sensory system. Sensors include wheel speed, acceleration and yaw, steering angle, motor current, tractive voltage and battery current. Maximum torque
vectoring effectiveness is realized through the application of a fully left/right independent electric powertrain. Each permanent-magnet synchronous Z-Force motor
produces a peak of 40 kW and 68 ft-lbs of torque. Electrical energy is stored in
a 6kWh pack composed of high-power LiIon-NCM pouch format cells. Energy
is recaptured using regenerative deceleration and the accumulator is one-hour
quick charging capable.

For 2014, Unicamp E-Racing team focused on weight reduction and reliability. To
meet these goals we used carbon fiber, kevlar and aluminum components and
also reduced from 13 to 10 wheels, for example. The result is a much smaller,
lightweight, reliable and fast car.
We would like to thank our university, UNICAMP, and also all our sponsors for the
great support theyve given to us.

With a new team and new car entering the Electric series, this year will mark
Penn Electric Racings first entry to the Formula SAE competition. We are excited
to present REVO. The objectives of this season focus on design for reliability and
manufacturability to ensure a completed car with our new team. Performance is
still a key concern in design, but it is not the only concern. Our goals include not
only high performance, but ensuring that the club has a foundation upon which to
improve in future years.

FSS Racing is proud to present our first electric racecar. The car was designed
with simplicity in mind. Our team targets the market of newcomers to performance electric cars who are interested in open-wheel auto crossing. This market
needs vehicles offering strong performances while remaining affordable and easy
to maintain. This is what we aim to achieve.

Every element of the car has been analyzed and redesigned with safety, reliability,
endurance and power efficiency in mind, using systems engineering principles to
prioritize design options. This is achieved through a design processes with numerous design reviews, revision, and testing. Critical design factors include electric
insulation, power efficiency, serviceability and reliability. All vehicle features were
carefully considered when determining the optimal design choices. Design leads
used these matrices in initial brainstorming and design phases to come to a mutual consensus as to the design features incorporated while assuring the project
remains on budget. Sustainability of the product is a key criterion to meet.

Purdue Electric Racing (PER)

The 2013 Purdue Electric Racing team (PER) is a newly established team and
this years entry represents the first ever electric Formula SAE vehicle produced
by Purdue University. The vehicle was designed from the ground up to take full
advantage of the electric powertrain. The main goal was to design an elegantly
simple and reliable car that would represent a strong foundation for future development. Rather than focusing on optimizing the various subsystems in the car, a
strong emphasis was placed on the overall vehicle layout and systems integration
to arrive at a cohesive end elegant vehicle design.

Illini Formula Electric

The goal of Illini Formula Electric for the 2014 season is to increase reliability and
while decreasing cost. This philosophy manifests itself in every subsystem of the
car. The main focus is placed on modifying last years design so as to reuse any
vital components, allowing us to focus our funds on improving electronics.

This year, a brand new state of the art motor, the YASA 400, was chosen for use
in our car. This motor greatly increased the power output of our car while also
reducing weight and complexity. This paired with our purpose built motor controller formed the heart of the car. The batteries were redesigned to be decrease
complexity and work optimally with our new motor. Mechanically, the largest
We opted to build our own BMS system to interface with existing battery manage- improvement was using a new drivetrain that features a simplified system with no
gearbox, taking advantage of the large rpm range of our motor. Minor modificament slaveModules (RLEC) on the batteries. To create the master controller
tions were made to the chassis and suspension for tune and optimize the car.
(MLEC) of our system we areusing an mbed NXP LPC1768 microprocessor to
emulate the MLEC. The MLEC communicates with six Enerdel RLEC modules over
CANBus.

Every subsystem on the car follows the same process of defining a problem,
researching,brainstorming, engineering, insight into how to better solve the
problem in the future, andvalidation of assumptions and performance of the
system or part.
The motor we are using Remy HVH250 HT motor. The motor is operated by a
RMS PM100 motor controller. The motor has software onboard that varies the
voltage supply to the motor based on input directly from the motor, as well as CAN
messages from the vehicle control unit.

Anteater Racing

The UCI 2013-2014 racecar team is competing in the 2014 FSAE electric
competition hosted in Lincoln, Nebraska. The team has competed in FSAE events
previously, however this is the first attempt at competing in the FSAE electric
competition. For this reason, a completely new design had to be used in order to
build this competition car. The goals for this new design was to create a car that
had a short manufacturing time, an even weight distribution, and as low of a cost
as possible while still remaining competitive.
Design Goals
Manufacturability: The car must be easy to manufacture in order to allow for a
short fabrication length and a longer testing time period.
Weight Distribution: The weight distribution from front to back must be as even as
possible. The goal was a 50-50 weight distribution, and we achieved a 55(Rear)45(Front) weight bias
Cost Effective: The total cost of the car must be kept affordable on our given
budget, while keeping performance at a competitive level.
