Abstract

In the automotive industry, car manufacturers have been improving the Noise, Vibration, and Harshness (NVH) in commercial vehicles. Ride comfort, drivability, stability are among the vital factors in vehicle performance and improving NVH would indirectly improve these factors. Equally important are the Formula Student race cars which students design, built and race. The car usually runs on a motorcycle engine on a carbon steel spaceframe and is capable of reaching more than 200 km/hr whilst weighing less than 350 kg. Many researches were conducted to identify and reduce the vibration values on vehicles, however since FSAE Race Cars do not function the same way, it is important to test, measure and evaluate the vibration of the car. This paper presents the analytical analysis, experimental analysis and simulations conducted on the engine mounting system of the current Taylor's Racing Team FSAE 2016 Race Car, TR16. It aims at developing engine mounting system for FSAE race car types.
