Design and fabrication of a formula style race car chassis The design process involved driver ergonomics, drafting of the entire chassis model on CATIA, strength calculations using ANSYS, fabrication of dummy chassis, final assembly and testing.

This project gave us hands-on experience on building up a formula style race car. Skills gained include arc welding, lathe operations, jigs and fixture building etc. Moreover it was an insight to what goes on in the industry, how to design practically, what skill goes into manufacturing such designs and how a team works.
