BAJA SAEINDIA 2013 COMPETITION
(14-17February 2013)

Every year the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE India) organizes national level students competition for the design, fabrication and testing of all terrain vehicle (ATV). The first competition was organized in 2007. This year the BAJA SAE India 2013 competition was jointly organized with National Automotive Testing and R&D Infrastructure Project (NATRiP) at Pithampur MP on 14-17 February 2013. The event was co-sponsored by leading automotive manufacturing companies like Mahindra and Mahindra, Briggs and Stratton Cummins India, GM & Anand Group.

The objective of the competition is to provide opportunities to engineering students to showcase their talents in design, manufacture and testing of all terrain vehicle, simulating the real world product development process. Such events are organized in US, South Africa, Mexico, Brazil and South Korea. The ATV should comply with the stringent norms stipulated in the Rule Book. It should be capable of enduring the 4km track consisting of mud, sludge, ditches, steep slopes, etc for four grueling hours after passing various Static and Dynamic tests. In short it is arduous test of man and machine.

The team consisted of 25undergraduate students from diverse branches whose only passion was to make the vehicle headed by the Captain Akshay Tilekar and Oshan Kothadiya was the driver for the team. The team bagged sponsorships from esteemed companies like Henkel Adhesives, Prto D , Shunya Enterprises etc.

This year 120 teams of engineering colleges from all over India participated in the BAJA SAE India competition. The competition consisted of static events such as design, cost and marketing presentations and evaluations. The dynamic events included acceleration, maneuverability, braking and hill climb. The highlight of the event was a four hour endurance test which saw the teams racing their vehicles on step and rough terrain.

The team excelled in Static events. The team passed all its safety & scrutiny test in one go. The team was well applauded for its compact construction, Build quality & the concept of replacement of welded joints by using adhesives. The cost report was appreciated for its detailed documentation of all the resources utilized. Marketing proposal was the prime highlight of the static event for the team. The marketing team came up with using ‘Prezi’ software compared to conventional MS office. The team earned maximum points for this new idea. Overall the team performed consistent maintain g its reputation at the national level.

The team recoded time of 7.5 sec in acceleration test thus starting 22nd on the grid for the endurance race. Hill climb test timing recorded was 21 sec. However the team couldn’t compete in the maneuverability test owing to problem of clutch overheating. The team started 22nd on the grid for endurance run. But during the 8th lap of the race the car had a mishap at hill 1 when other car dangerously tried to overtake. Owing to the collision the front right ball joint shread and we lost precious 45 min of the race. The position of the car was 4th when the mishap occurred. Hence the team couldn’t complete the endurance race. Settling for the overall 35th position. The final year members of the team participated for the HR rounds held at event.

Overall the event was a grand success as it provided the team with a great platform to showcase their dexterity in this competition.

‘Resonance Racing’
Bagged the first position at the National level in the 1st Maruti Suzuki Supra SAE 2011 competition
at
Madras Motorsports Race Track, Chennai

1 – 3 July 2011
Supra SAE 2011 was a competition organised by Maruti Suzuki and SAE India. The competition, being held for the first time in India, required students to design, validate, fabricate and finally, race a fully functioning, open wheel, open cockpit, formula style car around the Madras Motorsports Race Track (MMRT) at Chennai.

The competition kicked off with the registrations starting in April 2010. The preliminary design report was submitted in August 2010. All teams that had registered were asked to go through a screening process in September 2010, held at the ANSYS office, Pune. 46 teams were shortlisted on the basis of the design report and a presentation by an expert panel of judges. The selected teams were then supplied with a 800 CC Maruti engine and gearbox (sponsored by Maruti Suzuki). The design of the vehicle was governed by a rule book, which covered virtually all aspects with a special emphasis on safety.

Several months were spent in designing the various systems like the chassis, suspension, brakes etc. All of the designs were further validated with calculations and analysis using software’s like ANSYS. The designs were then changed according to the requirements.

Winning Team ‘Resonance Racing’ of AISSMS College of Engineering, Pune

The fabrication of the entire vehicle took 3 months. A lot of difficulties were faced in the manufacturing of the car. The design had to be refined further considering the limited means of fabrication at our disposal. The overall cost was also an important aspect during fabrication, and we had to work very hard to keep the expenses in check. Though short of money, we never compromised on the quality of components used, and our robust engineering and durability was our biggest asset. However, a compromise had to be reached when it came to the aesthetics, and our body was fabricated using steel sheets as opposed to FRP or carbon fibre that several other teams were using.

SUPRA SAEINDIA 2011
The event provides a real world engineering challenge for the SAEINDIA Student members that reflect the steps involved in the entire process from design and engineering to production to marketing and endurance. The SUPRA SAEINDIA 2011 is a competition which presents the Under Graduate & Post Graduate Engineering Students the task of designing, modelling and fabricating a formula type racing car. The concept behind SUPRA SAEINDIA 2011 is that a fictional manufacturing company has contacted a design team to develop a small Formula style race car. The prototype is to be evaluated for its potential as a racing car. The target marketing group for the race car is the non-professional weekend autocross racer. Each team designs and produces a prototype based on well laid down rules & regulations. The project fuels the exuberance of the youth by providing teams a platform to test their mettle, giving them a pragmatic exposure to real world challenges as faced in the industry. Students realize their talent through such an experience, making them proven candidates for the future as technocrats, entrepreneurs, designers, innovators and leaders.

This helps the objective of bringing out student talent to serve the nation for the years to come, in fulfilment of the Automotive Mission Plan (AMP2016) a dream to make India an International Automotive Hub.

The competition had a total of 1000 points, distributed among various categories:

July 1 Static Events 325 Points
Engineering design Report 50
Engineering design Evaluation 100
Marketing Presentation 75
Cost Analysis 100
July 2 Dynamic events 275 Points
Acceleration 75
Skid pad Tes 50
Autocross 150
July 3 Durability Events 400 Points
Fuel Economy 50
Endurance 350

Resonance Racing from AISSMS’s COE, Pune emerged as the overall winner and the winner in the endurance race with strong performances in all the other events. Secured a total of 691 points out of 1000
