Abstract or Summary
  • A student-built lap time simulation coupled with the scoring model of the Formula Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) Series has revealed the major importance of downforce on overall points. As a result, the Global Formula Racing (GFR) team has recently focused much effort towards the development of an aerodynamics package for their Formula SAE racecars. One component of the aerodynamics package is the undertray, a device that exploits the underbody airflow to generate downforce. This thesis details the development of the undertray used for the 2013 GFR aerodynamics package, including the aerodynamic design, mechanical design, manufacturing, and physical validation. The 2013 undertray is a simple inverted airfoil concept inspired by the Lotus Type 78 F-1 car.
