Designing and Experiment Study on Front Impact Attenuator for Formula SAE Racecar
According to the rule of China Student Formula SAE Competition, This paper discussed and designed the structure. It then chose aluminum-honeycomb and aluminum sheet to make the impact attenuator. Then static and dynamic experiments were carried out to test its performance. It finally drew a conclusion that the design could provide good protection for the driver and racecar. It could also be used on other similar vehicles.
