Design And Analysis Of Go-Kart Steering And Braking System For FKDC Season 3
A Go-kart is a four wheeled vehicle. Go-kart has no suspension and no differential. They are usually raced on scaled down tracks, but are sometimes driven as entertainment by non-professionals. 'Carting is commonly perceived as the stepping stone to the more expensive ranks of motor sports. Kart racing is generally accepted as the most economic form of motor sport. It can be performed by almost anybody and permitting licensed racing for anyone from the age of 8 onwardsas a free-time activity. Kart racing is used as a low-cost and relatively safe way to introduce drivers to motor racing. Kart racing is associated with young drivers and adults are also very active. Karting is as the first step in any racer’s career which can prepare the driver for highs-speed wheel-to-wheel racing by helping develop guide reflexes, car control and decision-making skills. In addition, it brings an awareness of the various parametersof the kart that can be altered to try to improve the competitiveness and also exist in other forms of motor racing. The main aim of this report is to explain the design, analysis and engineering aspects of steering and braking system. This report explains the objective, assumptions and calculations made in design of steering and braking system for a Go-kart. The design is made such that Go-Kart is easy to fabricate in every possible aspect. We made our design in all possible alternatives for a system and modeled them in CAD software namely CATIA V5 R21, analysis is done by usingANSYS R15.0based on analysis results.
