Concept Development of a Car
FSI-QA0Acad. year: 2020/2021
Mastering the process logic and continuity in the development of a new vehicle from the first task to define the prototype. Simultaneous consideration of manufacturability, material concept, technical requirements, standards and functionality.
Learning outcomes of the course unit
Students will acquire ability to design a new vehicle concept according to the assignment, understanding the context and the collision between the individual requirements for the new vehicle. Ability to design partial design nodes of the concept with regard to production technology, aerodynamics, design and structural properties.
Machine Design Fundamentals, Strength of Materials
