  • 1. Carbon Fibre Steering Wheel Design, Analysis and Manufacture Group Members: Amit Prem Clement Ooi Ciprian Chivoiu
  • 2. Carbon Fibre Steering Wheel: Design to Manufacture • Steering wheel was designed for the University Subaru and 206 race cars. • Concept Design and Stress analysis were undertaken using CAD and CAE software's. • Displacement load and Torsion loads Applied at 6 and 12 O clock Steering Wheel design & drawing Hyperlaminate Analysis
  • 3. Carbon Fibre Steering Wheel: Mould Design and Ply layup Mould designs-Catia V5 Ply Layup sequence • Carbon pre-preg 8020 200gsm 2*2 twill • Rim thickness 1.5mm with M250 mould insert, cured separately and bonded • Steering Centre and spokes 4mm thickness
  • 4. Carbon Fibre Steering Wheel: M250 mould- CNC machined • Paper templates were created to cut the Carbon fibre
  • 5. • Ply layup was carried out as per the sequence earlier. • The Rim was manufactured as two Halves and then post-cured to form a single component. • The rim was then integrated into the main mould as per the above diagram. • Cured at 110 degrees, vacuum bagged under heat lamps and for 2 and half hours. Carbon Fibre Steering Wheel: Ply Layup and Curing
  • 6. Carbon Fibre Steering Wheel: Finished Product • 50.56% of weight savings was achieved by using Carbon fibre. • The internal reinforcement provided additional stiffness to the steering rim. • The steering wheel was a perfect fit onto the Race cars. • The steering wheel went through all the stages from concept to a finished product.
