Congratulations to all the student teams that competed in Formula SAE Japan last week! The FSAE event brings together engineering students to compete in static events such as design presentation and cost reporting and dynamic events such as endurance and acceleration.
This year students used SOLIDWORKS and SOLIDWORKS SIMULATION as necessary software tools to complete at a world-class level.
Here are the results:
1st Place Nagoya University
2nd Place Kyoto University
3rd Place Doshisha University
4th Place Toyohashi University of Technology
Also finishing in the top 10 that designed their cars with SOLIDWORKS tools are:
Nagoya Institute of Technology
Yokohama National University
SolidWorks Japan continues to proudly sponsor FSAE teams and hosts workshops with automotive industry leaders to help students achieve their goals. For more information contact SolidWorks Japan.
This year sponsored teams will also receive SOLIDWORKS Electrical for 2D schematic and 3D wire harness design. Formula SAE and Formula Student Teams can apply at www.solidworks.com/SAE. Sponsored teams also receive SOLIDWORKS training tutorials that focus on design an analysis techniques with an FSAE vehicle such as flow analysis on an intake manifold, thermal analysis on brakes and stress analysis on the frame.
Thank you Junko and SolidWorks Japan for sharing with the SolidWorks Community. Marie
