Design, fabricate, develop, and compete with small, formula-style vehicles.
Formula Student is one of the world's biggest academic competitions. Every year, more than 600 student teams from universities all over the world competing with their self-constructed race cars.
Entrants will compete to design, build and race a formula style single seater electric racing car – providing students with invaluable real-world project experience as they begin their engineering career. The winner is not necessarily the team with the fastest car, but the one with the best package regarding construction, performance, financial planning, sales arguments and sustainability.
The 3DEXPERIENCE is our latest solution on the Cloud, which brings together CATIA, SIMULIA and SOLIDWORKS all in one place!
To allow everyone to win a prize, we are giving away best-in-class solutions, training materials and a dedicated support community to all teams and students taking part.
So… Ready to participate? Register to obtain free access to the 3DEXPERIENCE now!
Use the power of the 3DEXPERIENCE to share your work, do weight tracking /budget tracking, real time co-reviews, improve the way you collaborate between each other’s, set up efficient digital marketing and find the right partners!
Design the most optimized chassis (Lightweight, Stiffness, Ergonomics, and Recyclability)
Develop the most aerodynamic overall design (monocoque, wings, diffusers, spoilers, etc.) to maximize car and battery performance.
Design systems that maximize the conversion of battery power energy to drive the wheels.
Do smart connections between all car components that require energy and/or data.
Virtually prototype a new concept car (or reuse the existing one as a basis for optimization) in the 3DEXPERIENCE to digitally validate innovative options that will be selected for development. Invest in a 3DEXPERIENCE twin of your car to more quickly and reliably develop your perfect car. Get it right first time!
Formula Student challenges are usually judged across 8 categories divided into a series of 3 static and 5 dynamic events, for a total of 1000 points. A world ranking list is available here: https://fs-world.org/E/
Static Events: Presentation, strategy, organization, methodology, innovation and research merge together for one goal: testing the teams out off the track. 3 criterias: Business Plan Presentation, Cost and Manufacturing, Engineering Design for a total of 325 points.
Dynamic Events: Accuracy, speed, driving skills, synchronization and determination join together to go beyond the limits of the team and the prototype. 5 criterias: Skid Pad, Autocross, Endurance, Efficiency and Acceleration for a total of 675 points.
