ACADEMIC PROJECTS Title: Investigating effects of tire properties and steering mechanism on the turning circle diameter of a vehicle. Objective: To reduce TCD of the test vehicle by 10-20 % Scope: Steering linkage study, Steering mechanism kinematic study, vehicle handling model, tire models, ISO Standards Brief Procedure: Using Newton-Euler equations of motion a mathematical model was M.Tech. developed to understand vehicle response for a given steering input. This model was validated Project with experimental data from literature review. Similarly, kinematic models for steering system 2015-16 were developed and validated using ADAMS and experimental LEGO toy set up. A GUI is Structural prepared to link tire model (Pacejka), steering linkage and vehicle model to study the effect on Dynamics turning circle diameter. lab, ARAI Tools Used: ADAMS VIEW, ADAMS CAR, MATLAB Benefits to the company/Society: It is difficult to maneuver buses through congested lanes of cities. With reduced TCD, drivers will be able to turn the bus in lesser space. In addition, it will assist in parking the vehicle in narrow space. The full model developed, provides better understanding of vehicle dynamics and, the design and application of advance systems like ABS, EPAS and Electronic Stability Control.

B.Tech Project 2011-12 WCE

Title : Design of Front Wings for formula race car Objective: Achieve downforce to increase cornering speed Scope: Study the effect of height and angle of attack on the performance of aerofoil and the advantage of using multi element wing. Brief Procedure: First, the point for maximum performance of aerofoil was found using ANSYS Fluent. Then a 3d analysis was done in ANSYS to see the effect of multi element wings. The effect was compared to a baseline model without wings. A 1:8 scale prototype was manufactured using 3d printing and wind tunnel testing was done to compare the baseline model with the model having multi-element wings. The experimental data was compared with the simulation results. It was found that transient simulation has better agreement with the experimental results. Tools Used: ANSYS Fluent 2014, ICEM Benefits to the company/Society: Because of higher downforce, cornering performance of race cars is improved and smaller lap times can be achieved. Title: Vibration Analysis for improvement of driver comfort in an automobile Objective: To reduce the vibrations transmitted from the engine to the driver Scope: Experimental vibration analysis of the vehicle, where excitations are measured at specific points on the vehicle. Rubber mounts with required damping capacity are developed and used to reduce the vibrations transmitted to the driver from the engine.
