CSF 2015 team
In order to Chalmers Formula Student to keep the competitive advantage, we handpick the students and after interviewing the applicants a 12 month intensive work begins for the selected. As the different subgroups requires different specialties and personal attributes, it is crucial for the team to be properly exposed on Chalmers Campus, in Sweden and on international arenas.
Aerodynamics and Exterior Design
The aerodynamics subgroup will concentrate on drag and down force in relation to the front, rear and side wings. Regarding the under body, both theory and data validation through simulations show that more channeled air on the underside will generate more down force.
The chassis subgroup will be responsible for the frame and the exterior design of the chassis. This year, Chalmers Formula Student is going electric. Therefore, the importance of the chassis increases even more.
Communications group is responsible for everything around the team that is not directly connected with the design of the car such as: industry partnership, PR, team building events, competition logistics, business presentation and competition document submission.
Ergonomics, Driver Controls and Safety
The comfort of the driver depends on all the fine details around the driver’s seat, such as shapes, supports and the curvatures. The driver should feel the car’s every move. The challenge is to produce a car where the driver can become one with the car.
Electronics and Powertrain
For the first time in Chalmers Formula Student, the team is building an electric racecar! The electric powertrain subgroup will not only have the great responsibility of selecting the size and choice of power supply, but also the design of the gearbox.
Suspension and Unsprung Mass
The suspension group is the link between the road and the work of the other subgroups. All of the forces that make the car move are transferred through the tires. Ensuring that they are utilized to their fullest potential is crucial when targeting high performance.
As a trainee you have full insight in the project and can choose between dedicating to one subgroup or have a more general role. The trainee wont get any credits for the engagement, but have a good knowledge of the project until upcoming year. The Future of CFS are here.
