Design and analysis of wing mounts for a Formula Student racecar

Abstract [en]

This report covers the concept production of the mounts for a rear wing of a Formula Student racecar. A structural analysis was also executed of the whole wing. KTH Formula Student’s aerodynamical group requested that this would be done since this part would be better done if it was to be done by someone who inherits better mechanical knowledge.

The first part of the development process was to study the mounts for different types of racecars, and to later do an evaluation matrix to find the best suitable concept. A further development of the chosen concept was later done, by also performing more evaluation matrix’s that covered material, attachment and manufacturing. Studying literature was essential for this process.

Finally, the mounts for the rear wing was designed whilst also performing numerous structural analyses in order to optimize the results. It was essentially the results of the analyses that shaped the final design of the whole wing.

Abstract [sv]

Denna rapport täcker konceptframtagning av monteringen av en bakvinge till en Formula Student bil, samt en strukturell analys av hela vingen. KTH Formula Students aerodynamiska grupp begärde att detta skulle göras då det var det som saknades från deras arbete.

Den första delen av utvecklingsprocessen skedde med att studera dagens vingar till bilar, och sedan göra en evaluerings matris för att hitta det bäst lämpade konceptet. Sedan gjordes en vidareutveckling av konceptet samt med fler evaluerings matriser som täckte material, montering och tillverkning. För att utföra detta krävdes litteraturstudier.

Slutligen designades monteringen av vingen för att sedan utföra ett flertal strukturella analyser och sedan tolka resultaten av analyserna. Det var i själva verket resultaten av analyserna som formade den slutgiltiga designen av hela vingen.
