FRUCD Appreciation

Our crowdfunding campaign has reached 24% of our goal thanks to all the generous donations. Big thanks to Mr. Joseph Chua for the incredible support. All contributions are very prized and will go towards expanding our resources. 
Huge shoutout to ANSYS for supporting us with the software and support we need to perform structural simulations! Here are three simulations we recently performed to support our design cycle. Left: hardpoint pullout simulation in a composite plate. Right: structural composite floor with pedalbox rails. Bottom: steel tube chassis torsional stiffness with complete suspension representation.
