Composite Nose Cone

4 11 2009

This year the Carleton University Raven’s Racing is builing an all new composite nose cone and crash structure. This design is different from previous designs, combining both the nose cone and the crash structure into one integrated component. This design will provide the car with enhanced off axis impact resistance. The proposed design is a layered carbon fibre reinforced epoxy nose cone providing the maximum energy absorption capacity in all directions.

Pictures of the nose cone manufacturing and testing can be found here.
