Abstract:
The Braking System is the most crucial part of the racing vehicle. There is no doubt, that if only one minority failure in the braking system took place, this would be more than enough reason to cause the racing team disqualification from the competition. Time is the main and the most important criteria for any racing competition; on the other hand the formula student “FS UK SAE” competition care the most about developing the automotive engineering sense in the students by putting them under strict rules normally taken from the original version “formula 1” to encourage their creativity to reach the optimum performance under these strict rules. One of the most important rules is “No Braking by wire”, and the obvious consequences are more stopping distance and time. Braking distance is a critical facture in achieving racing success in a competitive domain. This report will cover using the bias bar, dynamic weight distribution “before and after braking” and carefully choosing the braking and suspension system components dimensions, in order to fulfill the main functions of “ABS and EBD” which are preventing the wheels from lock-up and preventing side skid of the vehicle during cornering in the different dynamic tests with full consideration of the maximum approachable deceleration of the vehicle without locking up without using any kind of electronic “actuators or control”. Mathematical model “Matlab” and Physical model “AME SIM” will be used to support the report's results.
