The competition is orga- nized jointly by SAE (Society Of Automotive Engineers) India, ARAI (Automotive Research Association Of India) and NATRIP (National Au- tomotive R & D and Research project). Saintgits Baja team named STRIDERZ , is a group of emerging enthusi- astic engineers committed to the pursuit of innovation and excellence in engineering. We hereby invite you to support team STRIDERZ through sponsorship of your esteemed Organization. A summary of the project including sponsorship options and benefits are included in this brochure. Looking forward for your kindhearted support and participation in this endeavor. Kind regards Asst. Prof. Francis A J Prof. Sajan Thomas Liju G K.M Faculty Advisor Head of Department Team Captain Mechanical Engineering Mechanical Engineering STRIDERZ Mob: +91 94477 80190 Mob:+91 9847418708 Mob: +91 9633201214 2 Striderz 2012– 2013 Striderz Team STRIDERZ is participating for the first time in SAE Baja In- dia. The team consists of 25 undergraduate students of SAINTGITS nd th ranging from 2 to 4 year in Mechanical Engineering. The team has been working for the last few months and is determined to put forward an impressive performance in the competition. 3 Striderz 2012– 2013 Saintgits www.saintgits.org SAINTGITS – Saint Gregorios Institute of Technology & Sciences was established in 2002, by a group of eminent academicians, administra- tors, and technocrats who are pioneering educators with an enterprising belief that continuous pursuit of knowledge is the sole path to success. The learning experience in SAINTGITS is characterized by a systematic meth- odology integrated with a team of dynamic faculty. We have an excellent track record of organizing esteemed programs and has on going collaboration with CALTECH university. SAE was started at Saintgits in the year 2009 and hosted the TIER II competition for the Chennai region which includes institutes from Kerala, Tamil Nadu etc. 4 Striderz 2012– 2013 SAE www.saeindia.org The Society of Automotive Engineers was founded in 1905. The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) is an international engineering society established to “further develop mobility on land, in air, and in space." It is an international organization with more than 84,000 members - engineers, business executives, educators, and students – from more than 97 countries. SAE sets the standards in fields such as ground vehicles, aerospace, refriger- ants, and fuel cells etc. SAE also offers resources and expertise in fields such as ground vehicles, aerospace, refrigerants, and fuel cells, to name only a few of the areas in de- signing, building, maintaining, and operating self-propelled vehicles for use on land or sea, in air or space. 5 Striderz 2012– 2013 SAE also sponsors many educational international competition programs, in- cluding three Aero Design events, a Clean Snowmobile Challenge, the For- mula Series competitions, the Baja Series competitions, a Super mileage competition, and a Robot Systems Challenge annually. The SAE Foundation serves as SAE’s link to educational facilities by distrib- uting awards to outstanding students and faculty. There are over 380 collegiate chapters of SAE at engineering schools around the world, and students make up more than 20% of SAE’s membership. Membership in a professional society affords students the opportunity to at- tend professional conferences, network, and gain valuable experience and training. It also makes available to the student various professional publications and research databases, all of which enrich the student’s education and enhance his or her future career. More information about SAE is available at www.sae.org. 6 Striderz 2012– 2013 SAE Baja www.bajasaeindia.org The Baja is an international competition that challenges college students to design, fabricate, and race an off-road vehicle. Rule guidelines place restrictions on the engine and frame, testing the imagination, knowledge, and creativity of the student Objective of the competition is to provide students with a challenging project that involves design, engineering, planning, manufacturing & marketing of the vehicle Students design the Baja car as if it is a prototype for a company, so cost, appearance, reliability, and performance all become key factors in judging. 7 Striderz 2012– 2013 VEHICLE SPECIFICATIONS Dimensions Lx B x H 75”x62”x67” Wheel base F-54”, R-52” Ground Clearance 12” Performance Max. speed 55 Kmph Turning radius 138” Engine Type Single cylinder OHC Displacement 304cc Transmission Type CVT + 2 F Steering Type Rack and pinion Suspension Front and rear Double wishbone with gas filled dampers and adjustable coil spring Brakes Front and rear Disc 182 mm Tyres Front /Rear 23x12x7.8 8 Striderz 2012– 2013 PROJECT BENEFITS The Baja competition is an excellent learning experience that requires the students to push their creative and engineering ability to the limit. The project provides students with significant challenges that require complete commitment and determination to overcome. The objective of the project is to present engineering students with the opportunity to apply their classroom skills to real world engineering problems and tasks. Students who participate in the program gain experience in mechanical design, fabrication, testing, communication, and project and labor-time management. The team member’s carry the engineering technical and managerial ex- perience gained from this project into the professional world. When the racing season is said and done, students come away with a profound sense of accomplishment, no matter how they fared at the competition. Besides the experience of designing and building a Baja car in less than a year, students gain a tremendous amount of teamwork and leadership skills. Since the role of the faculty advisor is strictly limited to administrative duties, students learn from sheer experience, which is typically better than learning out of a text or from a lecture. Baja SAE is one of the most fulfilling engineering experiences avail- able to undergraduates and graduates alike. 9 Striderz 2012– 2013 PROJECT BUDGET Particulars Cost (INR) Team Registration 50,000 Chassis and Bodyworks 60,000 Suspension and Steering System 90,000 Power Train 80,000 Electricals 15,000 Wheels and Tires 75,000 Car Transport 50,000 Team Transport and Accommodation 75,000 Promotion & Miscellaneous 55,000 Accessories 40,000 Grand Total 5,90,000 10 Striderz 2012– 2013 SPONSORSHIP BENEFITS The task of putting together an automobile is of paramount altitude that cannot be scaled without the support of sponsors.
