Abstract

This report provides a design analysis of a replacement's shifter mechanism for the 2014 model JCU Motorsports FSAE vehicle. Common FSAE shifter mechanisms were researched and reviewed to provide a better understanding of the needs required. A design approach was constructed to ultimately design a mechanism that conformed to all existing constraints and FSAE rules. Realistic load cases were identified and employed in the FEA analysis of the design. Supporting hand calculations were developed, proving the analysis to be accurate. Results showed the shifter mechanism does not fail under infinite life, with some parts of the design having a reasonably high safety factor, ensuring stability.
