Racing Car Technology
- Department of Automotive, Combustion Engine and Railway Engineering
The combined theoretical and practical subject focused on racing car technology. Subject deals closer to the formula student cars and their powertrains. In the lectures, the students will get acquainted with structure calculations of individual parts of the car, its manufacture and testing. The exercises are aimed at tackling small projects with a practical focus.
- Syllabus of lectures:
P1: Formula Student/SAE Competition
P2: Chassis, tires, suspension.
P3: Gears settings
P4: Package: rules, design.
P5: Body: aerodynamics (external, internal), functionality, aesthetics.
