For over 15 years, LEAP has supported Monash Motorsport (MMS) and their use of Ansys simulation tools to improve and optimise the design of their vehicles. Here we have compiled some of the articles we have created in collaboration with MMS – read on to learn how Ansys has helped MMS become the premier Formula SAE team in Australia.
Learn how FEA played an important role in the redesign of Monash Motorsport’s wheel centres for their F-SAE cars – reducing the mass from 906g to 731g for each wheel centre from the 2019 to new 2020 design. Read the blog
Monash Motorsport has a rich history with aerodynamics, being the first team in Australia and among the first in the world to implement effective aerodynamics packages in the Formula SAE competition. In recent years, this has been made much more efficient and effective through greater automation of their Ansys CFD simulations. Learn more in this blog article.
In 2016, Monash began developing an electrically powered car alongside the teams combustion car. This year served as a research and development year, allowing time for the team to learn, analyse and decide on the core concepts for the 2017 vehicle. FEA (Finite Element Analysis) was already used extensively by the team for mechanical (structural) and aerodynamic design and extending this to electromagnetic and electrical design using Ansys Maxwell allowed for faster, more accurate and more robust designs.
